2. The Undetermined Value of the Rest Mass In the case of the EMS mode of Eq. (45), the limit of zero rest mass corresponds to cos a ¼ 0. 1 on branch 1 of solutions. Therefore the present results hold only for a nonzero rest mass, but this mass can be allowed to become very small. This implies that the quantum conditions mc2 ¼ hn for the total energy and s ¼ h=2p for the angular momentum are satisfied for a whole class of small values of cos a and the corresponding rest mass. As pointed out by de Broglie and Vigier , this indeterminableness of the photon rest mass appears to be a serious objection to the underlying theory.
10À5 . Apart from the factor cos a, Eq. (173) agrees with a form by Hunter and Wadlinger  which appears to be consistent with microwave transmission experiments. Even if both these forms sometimes lead to a optical effects of an extended electromagnetic theory 49 rather limited photon diameter, however, there remains the question how a photon can release a single electron at atomic dimensions, such as in the phtoelectric effect. E. The Thermodynamics of a Photon Gas With a nonzero rest mass one would at a first glance expect a photon gas to have three degrees of freedom: two transverse and one longitudinal.
