Spinning Charged Ring

Dave Bergman developed and published (in 1990) the Spinning Ring model of elementary particles. Charge near the surface of the thin ring rotates at the speed of light.

This was the first physical model of particles that agreed with all the experimental data. The model requires fewer assumptions than the quantum model of particles. Unlike the quantum model, the new model is a physical model, and it is free of self- contradictions.

The ring model not only accounts for characteristics of the electron but also works for the proton, positron and the antiproton (with different size, mass, etc.). A single model is successful for all known stable charged elementary particles.

The charge on the ring is held in place by the magnetic pinch force which balances the strong Coulomb force.
