  Title Do electromagnetic waves always propagate along null geodesics? Type Journal Article
  Year 2017 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal Class. Quantum Gravity  
  Volume 34 Issue 20 Pages 12 pp  
  Keywords electromagnetic waves; curved spacetime; non-null geodesics  
  Abstract We find exact solutions to Maxwell equations written in terms of fourvector potentials in non-rotating, as well as in Gdel and Kerr spacetimes. We show that Maxwell equations can be reduced to two uncoupled secondorder differential equations for combinations of the components of the four-vector potential. Exact electromagnetic waves solutions are written on given gravitational field backgrounds where they evolve. We find that in non-rotating spherical symmetric spacetimes, electromagnetic waves travel along null geodesics. However, electromagnetic waves on Gdel and Kerr spacetimes do not exhibit that behavior.
