Wave Nature of Electrons
D) Matter Waves - ALL moving particles have wave properties.

The wavelength of ordinary objects are insignificant because their masses are
Electrons are small enough
to have a significant
Diffraction and interference patterns were
observed for electrons.
A scientist passed electrons through tiny double slits
and observed interference
Where did they get slits small enough
and close enough?
When you pass a beam of electrons through the slits of a crystal
you get an interference pattern
IS LIGHT A WAVE OR A PARTICLE?
Light behaves like a
and like particle
with very small objects
