Intrinsic Electric Charge of the Photon and Photon Structure

The photon is likened to a simple harmonic wavelength in a string. A comparison of the energy expression for that wavelength to the energy equation of a photon suggests an electromagnetic wave energy equation containing an expression for the finestructure constant. The compound amplitude of the electromagnetic wavefunction is a constant and has the dimension of electric charge. A helical wave structure suits the known physical properties of the photon, which in turn relates to an electron model.

Keywords: analogy, energydensity equation, wavebreadth and amplitude, wave potential, inchoate electric charge, primitive electrodynamics, electromagnetic wavespeed, finestructure constant, angular momentum, helical structure, electron model
