Electron Reflection off Crystal Lattice Planes

By: Thomas Lee Abshier, ND

The target particles in this case are the regularly spaced atoms in a crystal lattice.  In the experiment, the electron has a kinetic energy of 54 electron-volts, and is emitting an E field at all angles  which will polarize the space ahead of it; traveling at the speed of light.  The two zones of polarized DPs, the crystal lattice atoms and the incoming electrons, interact and produce a reflected wave of force.  If the crystal lattice does not resonate with the proper geometry, the reinforcement of the reflective force is not adequate to repel the electron.  At exactly the right spacing between the atoms, the momentum force generated by the incoming electron is identical to the reactive momentum force generated by the entrained crystal lattice.  As a result the electron will bounce at that angle, because that is the angle where we get a reflection, which is an adequate superimposition of force from all the particles in the crystal lattice to produce a reflection.  

will produce the typical level of polarization and , that will interact with the volume around the atoms.  Every atom that comes in has the potential of a direct hit, and bouncing off at a reflected angle.  But, when there is no resonance with the overall lattice structure, the percentage of electrons that reflect with this dead-on impact will be small.  But, when the angle of the detector resonates with the inter-atomic lattice, the electron will be in resonance with the crystal lattice, and reflect off of it.

The Schrödinger Wave Equation, the foundational mathematical column supporting Quantum Mechanics, expresses the probability of finding a particle at any given position.  The high velocity electron passing through a slit is a perfect example of a particle with a distributed presence interacting with an equally diffuse target.  The targets present a polarized space to the polarized DP cylinder accompanying the high velocity electron.  The interaction of these two volumes is the classic wave-type of phenomenon where edges interact, effect increases, reaches a maximum, and ebbs to a minimum.  The “Wave” is not really a cyclic or repeating phenomenon in such a case, rather it is describing more of the creating of the ebb and flow of a single half cycle.  

The final, and most persuasive data supporting Quantum Mechanics  and the can be anything with a space for polarized DPs due to the positively charged nucleus, or the space close an edge (which light and electrons refract around), the result is a complex mix of forces.  

In general, the polarized DP volume surrounding a target will react with the Polarized DP space around the high velocity electron probe.  They will interact and result is a chaotic and probabilistic interaction.  In the case of slit refraction, the electron behavior is predictably probabilistic because of the chaotic nature of the interaction of the free electron and the DP Cylinder with the slit.  As a result of this well-defined probabilistic distribution of interactions described by the Schrödinger Wave Equation accurately predicts the concentration of the electrons landing on the target.  But, the fact of the SWE accurately describing a phenomenon does not prove that the electron is a wave, or that its position is unknowable.  Rather, subatomic particles demonstrate the ability to manifest wavelike effects because of being placed under certain restrictive conditions.

In other words, the New Age religion built around woo woo phenomenon such as Quantum Mechanical uncertainty, looses its foundation when we realize that Quantum Mechanics is nothing more than a statistical phenomenon of electrons interacting with positrons in a polarized volume.
