(b) Consider two plane matter waves, each with the same amplitude ψ 0 2 / and traveling in opposite directions along the x axis. The combined wave Ψ is a standing wave: () 00 0 0 (,) ( ) ( 2 c o s ) . ik x t i k x i k x it x te e e e e k x e ω ωω ψψ −− + Ψ= + = + = Thus, the squared amplitude of the matter wave is |( , ) | ( c o s) ( ) , Ψ xt kx e kx 2 0 2 2 0 2 22 1 == + cos2 which is shown below. (c) We set Ψ ,c o s b g b g 2 0 2 21 2 0 =+ = to obtain cos(2 kx ) = –1. This gives ( ) 2 2 1 0 , 1 , 2 , 3 , kx n n π ⎛⎞ + , = ⎜⎟ λ ⎝⎠ We solve for x : xn 1 4 bg λ . 62.
