Title Bohm potential is real and its effects are measurable Type
Year 2021 Publication Optik Abbreviated Journal Optik
Volume 232 Issue Pages 166341
Keywords Bohm potential; Non-vanishing; Accelerating solutions
Abstract We analyze Bohm potential effects both in the realms of Quantum Mechanics and Optics, as well as in the study of other physical phenomena described in terms of classical and quantum wave equations. We approach this subject by using theoretical arguments as well as experimental evidence. We find that the effects produced by Bohm potential are both theoretically responsible for the early success of Quantum Mechanics correctly describing atomic and nuclear phenomena and, more recently, by confirming surprising accelerating behavior of free waves and particles experimentally, for instance.

Title Quantum particles that behave as free classical particles Type
Year 2020 Publication PHYSICAL REVIEW A Abbreviated Journal Phys. Rev. A
Volume 102 Issue 5 Pages 052211
Keywords Wave; Generation
Abstract The existence of nonvanishing Bohm potentials, in the Madelung-Bohm version of the Schrödinger equation, allows for the construction of particular solutions for states of quantum particles interacting with nontrivial external potentials that propagate as free classical particles. Such solutions are constructed with phases which satisfy the classical Hamilton-Jacobi for free particles and whose probability densities propagate with constant velocity, as free classical particles do.

Title Hot Fluids and Nonlinear Quantum Mechanics Type
Year 2015 Publication International Journal Of Theoretical Physics Abbreviated Journal Int. J. Theor. Phys.
Volume 54 Issue 5 Pages 1435-1449
Keywords Nonlinear quantum mechanics; Fluids; Temperature; High energy density physics
Abstract A hot relativistic fluid is viewed as a collection of quantum objects that represent interacting elementary particles. We present a conceptual framework for deriving nonlinear equations of motion obeyed by these hypothesized objects. A uniform phenomenological prescription, to affect the quantum transition from a corresponding classical system, is invoked to derive the nonlinear Schrodinger, Klein-Gordon, and Pauli-Schrodinger and Feynman-GellMaan equations. It is expected that the emergent hypothetical nonlinear quantum mechanics would advance, in a fundamental way, both the conceptual understanding and computational abilities, particularly, in the field of extremely high energy-density physics.

Title A statistical model for relativistic quantum fluids interacting with an intense electromagnetic wave Type
Year 2016 Publication Physics Of Plasmas Abbreviated Journal Phys. Plasmas
Volume 23 Issue 5 Pages 12 pp
Keywords
Abstract A statistical model for relativistic quantum fluids interacting with an arbitrary amplitude circularly polarized electromagnetic wave is developed in two steps. First, the energy spectrum and the wave function for a quantum particle (Klein Gordon and Dirac) embedded in the electromagnetic wave are calculated by solving the appropriate eigenvalue problem. The energy spectrum is anisotropic in the momentum K and reflects the electromagnetic field through the renormalization of the rest mass m to M = root m(2) + q(2)Q(2). Based on this energy spectrum of this quantum particle plus field combination (QPF), a statistical mechanics model of the quantum fluid made up of these weakly interacting QPF is developed. Preliminary investigations of the formalism yield highly interesting results-a new scale for temperature, and fundamental modification of the dispersion relation of the electromagnetic wave. It is expected that this formulation could, inter alia, uniquely advance our understanding of laboratory as well as astrophysical systems where one encounters arbitrarily large electromagnetic fields.

Title Explicitly covariant dispersion relations and self-induced transparency Type
Year 2017 Publication Journal Of Plasma Physics Abbreviated Journal J. Plasma Phys.
Volume 83 Issue Pages 15 pp
Keywords magnetized plasmas; plasma waves
Abstract Explicitly covariant dispersion relations for a variety of plasma waves in unmagnetized and magnetized plasmas are derived in a systematic manner from a fully covariant plasma formulation. One needs to invoke relatively little known invariant combinations constructed from the ambient electromagnetic fields and the wave vector to accomplish the program. The implication of this work applied to the self- induced transparency effect is discussed. Some problems arising from the inconsistent use of relativity are pointed out.

Title General connected and reconnected fields in plasmas Type
Year 2018 Publication Physics Of Plasmas Abbreviated Journal Phys. Plasmas
Volume 25 Issue 2 Pages 7 pp
Keywords
Abstract For plasma dynamics, more encompassing than the magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) approximation, the foundational concepts of “magnetic reconnection” may require deep revisions because, in the larger dynamics, magnetic field is no longer connected to the fluid lines; it is replaced by more general fields (one for each plasma specie) that are weighted combination of the electromagnetic and the thermal-vortical fields. We study the two-fluid plasma dynamics plasma expressed in two different sets of variables: the two-fluid (2F) description in terms of individual fluid velocities, and the one-fluid (1F) variables comprising the plasma bulk motion and plasma current. In the 2F description, a Connection Theorem is readily established; we show that, for each specie, there exists a Generalized (Magnetofluid/Electro-Vortic) field that is frozen-in the fluid and consequently remains, forever, connected to the flow. This field is an expression of the unification of the electromagnetic, and fluid forces (kinematic and thermal) for each specie. Since the magnetic field, by itself, is not connected in the first place, its reconnection is never forbidden and does not require any external agency (like resistivity). In fact, a magnetic field reconnection (local destruction) must be interpreted simply as a consequence of the preservation of the dynamical structure of the unified field. In the 1F plasma description, however, it is shown that there is no exact physically meaningful Connection Theorem; a general and exact field does not exist, which remains connected to the bulk plasma flow. It is also shown that the helicity conservation and the existence of a Connected field follow from the same dynamical structure; the dynamics must be expressible as an ideal Ohm's law with a physical velocity. This new perspective, emerging from the analysis of the post MHD physics, must force us to reexamine the meaning as well as our understanding of magnetic reconnection. Published by AIP Publishing.

Title Interacting quantum and classical waves: Resonant and non-resonant energy transfer to electrons immersed in an intense electromagnetic wave Type
Year 2022 Publication Physics Of Plasmas Abbreviated Journal Phys. Plasmas
Volume 29 Issue 2 Pages 022107
Keywords KLEIN-GORDON; DIRAC EQUATIONS; FIELD; PARTICLE; ACCELERATION
Abstract Dynamics of electrons subjected to a constant amplitude classical electromagnetic (EM) wave is investigated as a fundamental, representative problem in the physics of interacting quantum and classical waves. In the nonrelativistic regime (electrons as Schrodinger waves), the electron energy acquires a constant and a time dependent part. Driven by EM waves, both parts scale strongly with the amplitude, but we expect no resonant enhancement since the parallel electron “speed ” of nonrelativistic electrons could never match the wave phase velocity. In the relativistic regime (electron as a Klein-Gordon wave), however, a class of electron waves (with parallel speed matching the EM phase speed) are resonantly excited to extremely high energies. Such a direct resonant energy transfer from intense electromagnetic waves constitutes a mechanism that could, in principle, power the most energetic of cosmic rays (this mechanism will work on protons just as well). Some predictions of the theory will, hopefully, be tested in laboratory laser experiments. The nonrelativistic calculations will also be examined in the context of recent experiments using photon-induced near-field electron microscopy in detail.

Title Comparison of the electron-spin force and radiation reaction force Type
Year 2015 Publication Monthly Notices Of The Royal Astronomical Society Abbreviated Journal Mon. Not. Roy. Astron. Soc.
Volume 446 Issue 4 Pages 4112-4115
Keywords magnetic fields; plasmas; radiation mechanisms: general
Abstract It is shown that the forces that originate from the electron-spin interacting with the electromagnetic field can play, along with the Lorentz force, a fundamentally important role in determining the electron motion in a high energy density plasma embedded in strong high-frequency radiation, a situation that pertains to both laser-produced and astrophysical systems. These forces, for instance, dominate the standard radiation reaction force as long as there is a 'sufficiently' strong ambient magnetic field for affecting spin alignment. The inclusion of spin forces in any advanced modelling of electron dynamics pertaining to high energy density systems (for instance in particle-in-cell codes), therefore, is a must.

Title Two-mode squeezed state generation using the Bohm potential Type
Year 2022 Publication Modern Physics Letters B Abbreviated Journal Mod. Phys. Lett. B
Volume 36 Issue 09 Pages 2250025
Keywords Time-dependent coupled harmonic oscillator; Bohm potential; entangled states; two-mode squeezed states
Abstract We show that two-mode squeezed vacuum-like states may be engineered in the Bohm-Madelung formalism by adequately choosing the phase of the wave function. The difference between our wave function and the one of the squeezed vacuum states is given precisely by the phase we selected. We would like to stress that the engineering of two-mode vacuum states is possible due to the existence of the Bohm potential, and it is relevant because of its potential use in the propagation of optical fields, where it may render a variety of applications in optics. The approach to generate non-classical states, namely, two-mode squeezed states of a quantum mechanical system is one of the first applications of the Madelung-Bohm formalism.

Year 2022 Publication Optik Abbreviated Journal Optik
Volume 252 Issue Pages 168468
Keywords Gouy phase; Bohm potential; Lewis-Ermakov invariant
Abstract By adapting the Madelung-Bohm formalism to paraxial wave propagation we show, by using Ermakov-Lewis techniques, that the Gouy phase is related to the form of the phase chosen in order to produce a Gaussian function as a propagated field. For this, we introduce a quantum mechanical invariant, that it is explicitly time dependent. We finally show that the effective Bohm index of refraction generates a GRIN medium that produces the focusing needed for the Gouy phase.

Title Large-amplitude electromagnetic waves in magnetized relativistic plasmas with temperature Type
Year 2014 Publication Nonlinear Processes In Geophysics Abbreviated Journal Nonlinear Process Geophys.
Volume 21 Issue 1 Pages 217-236
Keywords
Abstract Propagation of large-amplitude waves in plasmas is subject to several sources of nonlinearity due to relativistic effects, either when particle quiver velocities in the wave field are large, or when thermal velocities are large due to relativistic temperatures. Wave propagation in these conditions has been studied for decades, due to its interest in several contexts such as pulsar emission models, laser-plasma interaction, and extragalactic jets. For large-amplitude circularly polarized waves propagating along a constant magnetic field, an exact solution of the fluid equations can be found for relativistic temperatures. Relativistic thermal effects produce: (a) a decrease in the effective plasma frequency (thus, waves in the electromagnetic branch can propagate for lower frequencies than in the cold case); and (b) a decrease in the upper frequency cutoff for the Alfven branch (thus, Alfven waves are confined to a frequency range that is narrower than in the cold case). It is also found that the Alfven speed decreases with temperature, being zero for infinite temperature. We have also studied the same system, but based on the relativistic Vlasov equation, to include thermal effects along the direction of propagation. It turns out that kinetic and fluid results are qualitatively consistent, with several quantitative differences. Regarding the electromagnetic branch, the effective plasma frequency is always larger in the kinetic model. Thus, kinetic effects reduce the transparency of the plasma. As to the Alfven branch, there is a critical, nonzero value of the temperature at which the Alfven speed is zero. For temperatures above this critical value, the Alfven branch is suppressed; however, if the background magnetic field increases, then Alfven waves can propagate for larger temperatures. There are at least two ways in which the above results can be improved. First, nonlinear decays of the electromagnetic wave have been neglected; second, the kinetic treatment considers thermal effects only along the direction of propagation. We have approached the first subject by studying the parametric decays of the exact wave solution found in the context of fluid theory. The dispersion relation of the decays has been solved, showing several resonant and nonresonant instabilities whose dependence on the wave amplitude and plasma temperature has been studied systematically. Regarding the second subject, we are currently performing numerical 1-D particle in cell simulations, a work that is still in progress, although preliminary results are consistent with the analytical ones.

Title Magnetic field seed generation in plasmas around charged and rotating black holes Type
Year 2014 Publication Physica Scripta Abbreviated Journal Phys. Scr.
Volume 89 Issue 8 Pages 7 pp
Keywords seed magnetic field; general relativistic drive; Kerr metric
Abstract Previous work by the authors introduced the possibility of generating seed magnetic fields by spacetime curvature and applied it in the vicinity of a Schwarzschild black hole. It was pointed out that it would be worthwhile to consider the effect in other background geometries and particularly in the vicinity of a rotating black hole, which is generically to be expected, astrophysically. In this paper that suggestion is followed up and we calculate generated magnetic field seed due to Reissner-Nordstrom and Kerr spacetimes. The conditions for the drive for the seed of a magnetic field is obtained for charged black holes, finding that in the horizon the drive vanishes. Also, the psi N-force produced by the Kerr black hole is obtained and its relation with the magnetic field seed is discussed, producing a more effective drive.

Title Quantum Cosmologies Under Geometrical Unification of Gravity and Dark Energy Type
Year 2019 Publication Symmetry-Basel Abbreviated Journal Symmetry
Volume 11 Issue 7 Pages
Keywords
Abstract A Friedmann-Robertson-Walker Universe was studied with a dark energy component represented by a quintessence field. The Lagrangian for this system, hereafter called the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker-quintessence (FRWq) system, was presented. It was shown that the classical Lagrangian reproduces the usual two (second order) dynamical equations for the radius of the Universe and for the quintessence scalar field, as well as a (first order) constraint equation. Our approach naturally unified gravity and dark energy, as it was obtained that the Lagrangian and the equations of motion are those of a relativistic particle moving on a two-dimensional, conformally flat spacetime. The conformal metric factor was related to the dark energy scalar field potential. We proceeded to quantize the system in three different schemes. First, we assumed the Universe was a spinless particle (as it is common in literature), obtaining a quantum theory for a Universe described by the Klein-Gordon equation. Second, we pushed the quantization scheme further, assuming the Universe as a Dirac particle, and therefore constructing its corresponding Dirac and Majorana theories. With the different theories, we calculated the expected values for the scale factor of the Universe. They depend on the type of quantization scheme used. The differences between the Dirac and Majorana schemes are highlighted here. The implications of the different quantization procedures are discussed. Finally, the possible consequences for a multiverse theory of the Dirac and Majorana quantized Universe are briefly considered.

Title Spinning massive test particles in cosmological and general static spherically symmetric spacetimes Type
Year 2014 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal Class. Quantum Gravity
Volume 31 Issue 8 Pages 21 pp
Keywords exact solution; conformally flat spacetimes; spinning massive particle; cosmological spacetimes
Abstract A Lagrangian formalism is used to study the motion of a spinning massive particle in Friedmann-Robertson-Walker and Godel spacetimes, as well as in a general Schwarzschild-like spacetime and in static spherically symmetric conformally flat spacetimes. Exact solutions for the motion of the particle and general exact expressions for the momenta and velocities are displayed for different cases. In particular, the solution for the motion in spherically symmetric metrics is presented in the equatorial plane. The exact solutions are found using constants of motion of the particle, namely its mass, its spin, its angular momentum, and a fourth constant, which is its energy when the metric is time-independent, and a different constant otherwise. These constants are associated to Killing vectors. In the case of the motion on the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric, a new constant of motion is found. This is the fourth constant which generalizes previously known results obtained for spinless particles. In the case of general Schwarzschild-like spacetimes, our results allow for the exploration of the case of the Reissner-Nordstrom-(Anti) de Sitter metric. Finally, for the case of the conformally flat spacetimes, the solution is explicitly evaluated for different metric tensors associated to a universe filled with static perfect fluids and electromagnetic radiation. For some combination of the values of the constants of motion the particle trajectories may exhibit spacelike velocity vectors in portions of the trajectories.
