AH Physics: wave-particle duality

We’ve been looking at wave-particle duality this week.

Here are 2 videos. The first is about electron diffraction (G. Thomson’s experiment) and De Broglie’s equation, while the second looks at the Davisson-Germer experiment.

Following on from our discussion of the Davisson-Germer experiment, I found a copy of Davisson’s Nobel Lecture online.  You can read it using the download link below.  You should be able to follow Davisson’s lecture as it ties in nicely with the modern physics element of the AH course.
