Abstract

A theoretical calculation, based on classical electrodynamics, gives for the maximum angular deflection, when certain approximations are made, He/mφ, where ω/2π is the frequency of the radiation, and H is the field due to it. For sunlight (H=.04) the value is only 4 X 10-10, far too small to detect experimentally, while for intense x-rays, the value is of the order of 10-13. Recently C. J. Lapp reported having obtained an observable deflection with x-rays. If further research should confirm this result, it would appear to be in direct conflict with the classical theory.
