Zitterbewegung ring electron
A new semiclassical model of the electron with helical solenoid geometry is presented.
This new model is an extension of both the Parson Ring Model and the Hestenes
Zitterbewegung Model. This model interprets the Zitterbewegung as a real motion that
generates the electron’s rotation (spin) and its magnetic moment. In this new model,
the g-factor appears as a consequence of the electron’s geometry while the quantum of
magnetic flux and the quantum Hall resistance are obtained as model parameters. The
Helical Solenoid Electron Model necessarily implies that the electron has a toroidal
moment, a feature that is not predicted by Quantum Mechanics. The predicted toroidal
moment can be tested experimentally to validate or discard this proposed model.
