Particle Spin and Magnetic Moment as Quantum Field Effects

Authors: Ray Fleming

In a prior paper the author explained how the physical constants arise due to the polarizability and van der Waals torque of the quantum field of standard model quantum field theory. A more detailed development of how spin and magnetic moment arise from the quantum field is presented here. Recognizing that a central charge causes polarization of the quantum field, it is a simple matter to explain how the polarization process, rather than being random, leads to quantum dipole rotation on a common axis. This leads to spin and magnetic moment even when the central charge is static. This model also shows why the g-factor is approximately two instead of one, and how a semi-classical electron model can avoid the speed of light limit problem. This model can also be applied to protons by considering that a proton’s magnetic moment is due to its actual radius rather than its Compton wavelength. The neutron magnetic moment is also predicted by this model more accurately than the quark model by assuming an orthogonal combination of the electron and proton magnetic fields.
