“Buckingham then attacked again in “Science”, and again I was not allowed to reply.”
Readers who do not have access to the 28th October 1994 issue of Science may like to see this ‘attack’ for themselves, given that Ron lives in a little world of his own, where he is right and everybody else is wrong. What are the odds?
Review of Modern Nonlinear Optics
” There are two papers by Myron Evans in part 2. The first is entitled “Laser and pulsed laser NMR spectroscopy” and presents Evans’s contentious views of this infant subject. Its figure 4, showing an apparent shift in a methoxy resonance caused by a circularly polarized laser beam, is not to be found in the paper that is cited as its source. The second paper, “Some properties of longitudinal fields and photons,” runs to 213 pages. Evans proposes that a circularly polarized beam is associated with a static magnetic field in the direction of propagation and that this field is of opposite sign for right and left circular polarization. However, such a proposal requires that rotating positive or negative charges radiate circularly polarized light having opposite magnetic fields; that is, there would be two distinct types of right (and left) circularly polarized light, contrary to experience. The paper contains lengthy and probably unrefereed criticisms of L.D.Barron’s comments on a related paper by Evans and is seriously out of place in this volume.”
