E&M Localization and Vacuum Response

Light must exist in wave packets or not much energy would fall on any one atom to complete its absorption. The quantum of energy exchanged is determined by the stable states of the atom, and is the difference between a ground and an exited state. We can use Maxwell's equations and extent them, allowing non-zero charge and current terms on the right-hand side where we used to put zero for what we thought was a vacuum. Simply by stating mathematically that there exists such a packet we imply the existence of what amounts to a diffuse sheath acting like a phased-array antenna to keep the energy from spreading out.

This is what an optical mirror does: it responds in phase and so radiates the incoming light. Also the walls of a waveguide are simply good conductors reflecting energy back inside. “Inhomogeneous fields” comprise such a response accompanying the propagation of a photon, and I investigate their characteristics.

Rather than supporting our current understanding of quanta, it seems that any size of light packet can exist, even fractional values less than the “h-nu” energy required for exchange with a particle. Like pennies in a coin machine that takes only nickels or more, smaller packets cannot be absorbed and so can be called dark energy with respect to electromagnetic interaction. Neither can they be emitted so we cannot yet explain their origin without further theory. This will involve interaction with quantized photons, or creation at an early epoch in the big bang before condensing particles decoupled a more unified field."
