Can we obtain interference pattern by using single electron/photon in Young's Double slit experiment? If yes, then how ...and if no, then why?
G.I. Taylor did the first such experiment in 1909; see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._I._Taylor
And yes, the statistical pattern of many repetitions shows interference.
The same result holds for similar experimental setups; I've done it with electrons where the slits were provided by ultrathin gold films.
How does this happen? It is just a fundamental property of quantum physics - Richard Feynman didn't explain it in his lectures, volume III; it simply is.
Interference pattern will emerge statistically. Single electron experiment will result in a single electron appearing on the screen, but the probability for this electron to appear at a certain point on the screen will be governed by interference of probabilities of a single-slit experiment. As a result, sending more electrons through a double-slit , one after another, will gradually build up exactly an interference pattern.
Yes we can , that is called single photon double slit experiment But its general question that how single particle can can interfere with itself so physicst tryies to cheque that by observing the phenomenon but an intresting think happen , pattern get vanish as it observed so its mistery as i think.... but in recen i read a article of prof. Stinberg who has obsebed the path of photon with no loss of interference pattern which again a big question for physics
