jan 1, 1924 - Louis de Brogle

Description:

In this thesis (1924) de Broglie developed his revolutionary theory of electron waves, which he had published earlier in scientific journals. (See de Broglie wave.) The notion that matter on the atomic scale might have the properties of a wave was rooted in a proposal Einstein had made 20 years before. Einstein had suggested that light of short wavelengths might under some conditions be observed to behave as if it were composed of particles, an idea that was confirmed in 1923. The dual nature of light, however, was just beginning to gain scientific acceptance when de Broglie extended the idea of such a duality to matter
