I thought quantum back pressure was all about the force of light reacting against something like a wall or mirror ? I also thought it only worked on an itsy bitsy quantum scale?
when researching stuff related to woodward's mach drive and worm holes i came across references to quantum back pressure as evoked in quantum theories about wormholes.
quantum back pressure has severe consequences for wormhole creation and maintenance. it is often evoked as an argument against tranversible worm holes. but it does not actually forbid that either. but at any rate quantum back pressure is also the key to controlling them.
As a consequence of quantum back pressure you can charge a wormholes apertures with electric, magnetic, mass, inertial and other properties. and that means you can move the apertures where you want to accelerate them and do other desireable things as well.
A method to calculate light curves of the gravitational microlensing of the Ellis wormhole is derived in the weak-field limit. In this limit, lensing by the wormhole produces one image outside the Einstein ring and one other image inside. The weak-field hypothesis is a good approximation in Galactic lensing if the throat radius is less than 1011km. The light curves calculated have gutters of approximately 4% immediately outside the Einstein ring crossing times. The magnification of the Ellis wormhole lensing is generally less than that of Schwarzschild lensing. The optical depths and event rates are calculated for the Galactic bulge and Large Magellanic Cloud fields according to bound and unbound hypotheses. If the wormholes have throat radii between 100 and 107km, are bound to the galaxy, and have a number density that is approximately that of ordinary stars, detection can be achieved by reanalyzing past data. If the wormholes are unbound, detection using past data is impossible.
This is way over my head, and would probably be better placed in Science & Technology forum.
