bending a laser with magnets?

bending a laser with magnets?


I was wondering if it could be possible to bend a laser beam using a magnet if the laser was charged somehow according to the particle theory of light if possible.

RE: bending a laser with magnets?

Light has no charge, and cannot be bent other than by matter or gravity.

If you can do it - don't forget to write to Nobel comitte - you will get Nobel prize for sure :)

RE: bending a laser with magnets?

thats not entirely true light can bend.  a black hole has enough gravity to pull light. so it is possible to have enough gravity to pull light. now can it be done in practice well no it has not been done yet.
