  1. Intro to Quantum Mechanics(phys 304) • Instructor: Prof. Marcel Franz • Textbook: “Introduction to QM” by D.J. Griffiths (second edition) • Lectures: Tu & Th, 9:30-11:15 • Course webpage: www.physics.ubc.ca/~franz/phy304.html

  2. Particle-wave duality What is this? Young’s “double-slit” experiment Interference: Light consists of WAWES

  3. If light consisted of particles…

  4. Light interference Path difference: Intensity maxima: Intensity minima:

  5. Now perform the same experiment with electrons Experiment by A. Tonomura of Hitachi Corp., June 1999

  6. Electrons: particles or waves? http://www.hqrd.hitachi.co.jp/em/doubleslit.cfm

  7. What can we conclude about the electron from Tonomura experiment? Electrons appear to have both particle-like andwave-likeproperties!
