Your question doesn't make grammatical sense, and it is very difficult to guess what you are asking. Moreover, the title asks something very different. Please improve the formulation. – Arnold Neumaier Sep 30 '12 at 16:33
Thank you for providing the link, but it is behind a pay wall so I can read only the abstract.From this, and the date of publication, 1989, it is evident that their interpretation has not been supported by the mainstream physics community, so most probably no experiments have been done to confirm or refute their point of view. – anna v Sep 30 '12 at 17:44
If one searches by the authors names in google a pdf comes up. – anna v Sep 30 '12 at 17:48
