- Is the wave-particle duality a real duality? 10 answers
I had an interesting conversation with CuriousOne the other day about the question Experiment that demonstrates the wave-particle duality of electrons. I thought that wave-particle duality existed, CuriousOne thought it didn't (whether CuriousOne thought this wasn't true for both light and matter, or just matter I'm not really sure). Some of the comments were really interesting, and I wanted to know what some of the physicists here thought.
The comments on the question are just below the main question, and are just below my answer to the question (now moved to chat). Please don't close this with "not enough research" as the reason, I did look into it, but some of CuriousOne's comments left me kind of confused.
In terms of people thinking this is a duplicate: I am asking whether there is experimental evidence for electrons having a wave-particle duality (this duality being like the one light has) and whether the double-slit experiment is an example of experimental evidence for this.
Was de Broglie's hypothesis that electrons (and other matter) have wave-particle duality correct? Does the double-slit experiment prove this, or have anything to do with this? What is some experimental evidence for de Broglie's hypothesis?
