Dr. Richard Gauthier describes a new physical model incorporating the notion of superluminal motion as an explanation for the “zitterbewegung” or “jitter” in the electron. His model is based on a relatively simple mathematical description of the electron quantum’s trajectory, which suggests that the superluminal/subluminal quantum concept for the electron and the superluminal quantum model for the photon may provide useful physical models.

*“The superluminal/subluminal quantum concept for the electron and the superluminal quantum model for the photon may provide useful physical models for the electron and the photon and perhaps for other elementary particles as well. The superluminal/subluminal model of the electron and the superluminal model of the photon would be particularly interesting if they could be confirmed experimentally and then harnessed in a practical way for superluminal communication and/or transportation.”* – Dr. Richard Gauthier
