Craig Ogilvie Craig Ogilvie 2 Summary Lecture 38 distant source e- interference pattern controlled by the field/wave characteristics of each electron Interaction with the screen controlled by the quantized characteristics of the electron Electron is a quantized wave of a matter field, l=h/p Light is a traveling wave of an E/B field Energy comes in discrete bundles, quanta, “photons”, energy=hf
