A Relationship Between Magnetic Moment and Particle Radius
Keywords: atom, electron, fine structure, magnetic moment, nucleon, particle physics
The structure of the electron is postulated to consist of two counterdirectional circulating electromagnetic fields: One is considered to be the electron's Compton field singularity (Compton wavelength), and the other is the neutrino (in electromagnetic form). This model describes the relationship between the radius and magnetic moment of the electron by means of the Compton wavelength in terms of the Sommerfeld fine structure. This relationship is extended to the proton and neutron. The radius of each is derived as the approximation rp 2.75 ? 10−14 cm and rn 1.21 ? 10−13 cm.
