Effective mass of photon in liquid water environment of life and soft maters

Bui Thi Le Quyen, D Ngoc Mai, N Tri Lan, and N A Viet

It is well known that from four fundamental forces, only electro-magnetic force plays clear and important role in our life reality. The spin one exchange boson caring the electro- magnetic interaction is photon. The condition of zero-mass of photon leads to the Coulomb law with long-range interaction behavior. We consider analogy Anderson-Higgs mechanism, in some liquid water environments at a certain temperature, photon can have a finite effective mass, consequence to a Yukawa type potential. This screening potential could leads to sort-range behavior of electro-magnetic effective interaction. We use this mechanism to develop physics models to explain some phenomena in life and soft systems.
