, known as buckminsterfullerene or “bucky ball”, is a naturally-occurring form of carbon
that is shaped like a soccer ball.
In 1999 C
was shown to exhibit wave-particle duality
when diffraction and interference patterns where observed when C
molecules were passed
through single and multiple slits, respectively.
What is the wavelength of a C
