Bounded photons physics experiment

February 28, 2007  | 
I had been presented with disappearing light experiment conducted by
David A Chalmers
in 2001. Let me present you my own experiment. I had been observing blue Light-Emitting Diode (LED) diode using 3D object recognition technique.
WARNING - Do not try this experiment yourself, because LED might seriously damage your eyesight.
Experiment results: Photons were becoming visible and invisible in equally long intervals. I've seen about 30 photons circulating around the LED. There are track points where each photon appeared (blue colour path) and disappeared (red colour path).

I couldn't recognise if photons were exact spheres, but they were moving around the LED similarly like electrons. I could clearly see movement of each photon. Diameter of a photon by observation method was about 1.5 mm. Movement of each photon created one ellipse. Each photon made 1 revolution in about 1 second. Each photon disappeared twice and appeared twice at exactly same point during each revolution.

I observed 3D object created by movement of photons where each photon created 2 sides of it. About 30 observed photons created object with about 60 sides (looking like a sphere). As observation distance from the LED source of blue photons was changing, diameter of a sphere was changing too. The closer I was, the smaller and darker sphere I saw, the farther I was, the bigger and lighter sphere I saw. The size of photons wasn't changing during observation distance change of the sphere object.

A photon as it moves is becoming
just like "1" and "0".

From about 0,5 metre distance I could see about 50 mm dark blue sphere. From about 1,0 metre distance I could see about 100 mm blue sphere. From about 1,5 metre distance I could see about 150 mm light blue sphere.
