17 EISCAT_3D Workshop, Uppsala, 19 – 21 May 2010 Fundamental question: What are the complete physical characteristics of EM radiation? Bo Thidé17 Symmetric under inhomogeneous Lorentz transformations. The concomitant Lie group is the 10-dimensional Poincaré group P(10). According to Noether’s theorem there therefore exist 10 conserved EM quantities. In fact there exist 23 exact continuous symmetries/conserved quantities (in vacuo), plus an as yet unknown number of approximate, conservation laws [Ibragimov, 2008]. Start from the beginning: the microscopic Maxwell-Lorentz equations

18 EISCAT_3D Workshop, Uppsala, 19 – 21 May 2010 Conserved quantities in a closed electromechanical system (matter + EM fields) [Boyer, 2005] (1) Homogeneity in time => conservation of system energy (cf. Poynting’s theorem): Homogeneity in space => conservation of system linear momentum (gives rise to translational Doppler shift): Foundation of conventional ‘linear momentum’ radio. Bo Thidé18

19 EISCAT_3D Workshop, Uppsala, 19 – 21 May 2010 Conserved quantities in a closed electromechanical system (matter + EM fields) [Boyer, 2005] (2) Invariance under proper Lorentz transformations => conservation of system centre of energy: Isotropy in space => conservation of system angular momentum (gives rise to azimuthal Doppler shift): The first part is the mechanical angular momentum J mech. The second part is the EM angular momentum J field. Foundation of ‘angular momentum’ radio or ‘dual radio’. Bo Thidé19

36 EISCAT_3D Workshop, Uppsala, 19 – 21 May 2010 Total radiated EM field angular momentum Bo Thidé36 For radiation beams in free space, EM field angular momentum J em can be separated into two parts [Jackson, 1998; Thidé, 2010]: For each single Fourier mode in real-valued representation [van Enk & Nienhuis, 1992]: The first part is the EM spin angular momentum (SAM) S em, a.k.a. wave polarisation, and the second part is the EM orbital angular momentum (OAM) L em. NB: In general, both EM linear momentum p em, and EM angular momentum J em = L em + S em are radiated all the way out to the far zone!
