A dynamic model of atoms: structure, internal interactions and photon emissions of hydrogen

By W. A. Hofer

Abstract

The standard solution of the Schroedinger equation for the hydrogen atom is analyzed. Comparing with the recently established internal properties of electrons it is found, that these solutions cannot be seen as physically valid states of the electron wave. The paper therefore proposes a new model of hydrogen based on internal properties of electrons. The ground state of the hydrogen system (T=0) is an inertial aggregation within the atomic shell, the calculation yields an atomic radius of 0.330 nm. Electron proton interaction within the atom are treated with a causal and deterministic model, the resonance frequency of the hydrogen system of $ 6.57 \times 10^{15} Hz $ is referred to elastic deformations of its nucleus, resonance levels are a result of boundary conditions for radial electron waves and photon interactions due to nuclear oscillations. Spectral emissions of excited atoms can be referred to a decay of the state of motion of the coupled electron-proton system. The framework developed is essentially deterministic, microphysical processes analyzed are referred to material characteristics of particles involved. Statistical effects are referred to interactions with the atomic environment, the results derived are compatible with the second and third principle of thermodynamics.Comment: 12 pages (RevTeX) and 2 figures (eps).
