Louis de Broglie posited that if light can have material properties, conversely, matter should exhibit wave properties. He demonstrated that the relationship between mass and wavelength was as follows… For light: E = mc2 E = hν = hc / λ Therefore, mc = h / λ and for particles : (mass)(velocity) = h / λ OR… The wave nature of matter λ = h mv
