Title: Gravitational scalar field coupled directly to the Maxwell field and its effect on solar-system experiments

Abstract

The effect of the massless gravitational scalar field assumed to couple directly to the Maxwell field on the solar-system experiments is estimated. We start with discussing the theoretical significance of this coupling. Rather disappointingly, however, we find that the scalar-field parameters never affect the observation in the limit of geometric optics, indicating a marked difference from the well-known contribution through the spacetime metric.
