I'm new to this forum and I'm studying semiconductor physics at the moment. I just wanted to ask a thing about the concept of spin: when it was studied for the first time, in the Stern-Gerlach experiment, there was an apparatus that deflected the incident particles with a magnetic field ( the particles had spin 1/2), and those particles were able to locate either in the top or the bottom part of the screen.
My question is: what would happen if in the experiment particles with spin 1, 2, or 3, for example (bosons) were used? Where would the particles accumulate in that case, and why? I know that such an experiment is impossible to do with photons, because they don't posses a magnetical moment, they only posses spin, but I mean in the case of other kind of particles, with integer spin.
