I was wondering if bosons can create fermions ?
Cause I heard that photons which are bosons can create electrons which are fermions ? But then I heard from another source that fermions cannot be
Therfore, I am now confused.
Yes, as long as what's created conserves the total spin and charge (among other things). Not really a confusing process, truthfully...it was the
easiest part of my Modern Physics course when I took it back in the day.
So you mean that a boson can create a pair of pseudobosons that later split up to form individual fermions ? Thereby conserving the spin .
And as for it being the easiest part of your Modern Physics course. Remember i'm not doing any Modern Physics course. I'm just reading a book out of
interest and asking some the questions that I think of.
