How does a photon “find” an electron to give its energy, if the location of the electron isn’t certain due to the uncertainty principle?

You know, there is a theory that the electron is a field and not a particle. The photon is also a wave. Quantum Field Theory is the name of this theory. These fields interact according well-known field equations so that the photon does not have to “find the electron”. Its field must simply encounter the electron field.

Quora’s physics questions refer to the photon and electron as particles. Or, perhaps, wave-particle duality. Although it is my retirement mission, I want to share how QFT solves Quantum Mechanics & Relativity’s problems. However, it can get frustrating. If you don’t wish to purchase my book ($4.95 ebook), please read Chapter 10 .
