Title: Electric and Magnetic Fields Due to Massive Photons and Their Consequences
Author: Arbab, Arbab I.
Abstract: Allowing photons to bear mass, the electric and magnetic ¯elds of a steadily moving charge are no longer perpendicular to each other, as anticipated from Biot-Savart law. The electric and magnetic ¯elds of such a particle depend on the gauge potentials, ' and ~A . The orthogonality relations of the particle ¯elds and the direction of motion depend on the mass of the photon. The non-relativistic correction to the particle ¯elds was found to be related to the Lorenz gauge condition. It is shown that the existence of magnetic monopoles inside matter is inevitable when magnetic ¯eld is applied in a conductor. Their existence is a manifestation of the massive nature of the photon inside matter. Neither electric nor magnetic current is separately conserved for photons, but their sum is. Massive photons are found to produce electric and magnetic ¯elds. A force proportional to the square of the current is found to act along the wire, F = 1 2¹0I2, where ¹0 is vacuum permeability.
