need some technobabble related to superstrings. The fantasy technology
involved does not have to be in any sense scientifically correct or
possible; but for the benefit of readers who might actually know some
science, I'd like the technobabble to be vaguely plausible. So in
connection with that I have two questions:
1. Does a superstring have a natural resonance frequency? (If so, I
would assume the string related to different particles each have a
unique resonance frequency, but please correct me if I am wrong.)
2. Can a superstring be polarized or not polarized (i.e., vibrate in a
polarized state, and/or vibrate in a not polarized state)?
If the answer is in the negative on either question -- no resonance
frequency, and/or no state of polarization -- I could use suggestions
for other jargon used to describe the parameters of superstrings.
(Like, particles have charge, mass, and spin; waves have frequency,
amplitude, phase, and possibly polarization; superstrings have
<blank1>, <blank2>, and <blank3>, etc.)
Thanks in advance for all replies!
