Planck Radiation Formula for Massive Photons

Golden G. Nyambuya


Having demonstrated earlier that massive photons should, in principle, exist without any such problems as (1) violation of gauge symmetry, (2) short lifetime, (3) short range, (4) extra degree of freedom, and (5) speed less than the speed of light, we compute the corresponding Planck Radiation Law for these massive photons. We find that these massive photons aught to obey modified Stefan-Boltzmann Law that is readily testable in the laboratory. This interesting finding maybe helpful in solving the long-standing issue of photon mass.
