About This Special Issue
All we know about our Universe comes to us through light. Visible light and invisible light and in general Electromagnetic Radiation. Einstein demonstrated in 1911 by his publication in “Annalen der Physik, (ser. 4), 35, p. 898 – p. 908, the impact of gravity on light and the disturbance of our interpretation of the Universe. By gravity, the position of the stars we observe, changes through electromagnetic – gravitational interaction. This series discusses the impact of General Relativity and the distortion of our observations of our Universe. And the possibility of other theories and explanations than a curved space-time continuum to describe electromagnetic-gravitational interaction.

Aims and Scope:

  1. General Relativity
  2. Observable Universe
  3. Dark Matter
  4. Cosmography
  5. Black Holes
  6. The Boundaries of our Universe

    Abstract: Photonics is the physical science of light based on the concept of “photons” introduced by Albert Einstein in the early 20th century. Einstein introduced this concept in the “particle-wave duality” discussion with Niels Bohr to demonstrate that even light has particle properties (mass and momentum) and wave properties (frequency). That concept beca... Show More
