The classic double-slit experiment is simple to execute, requiring only a coherent light source such as a laser pointer, a screen and a plate with two thin parallel slits.
He used a double-slit experiment as proof that a particle's behavior can be altered by a person's perception of it.
An important basic concept behind the investigators' innovation derives from Young's double-slit experiment, which you may recall from your elementary-physics classes.

He covers quants, including events and moving equations, the double-slit experiment, the lepton Hamiltonian, rotations of systems, masses and the one-mass state, and gauge fields, including electroweak fields (the bi-mass state, neutrinos, and electroweak transformations), gluon fields (rotation of the Cartesian frame, quarks and gluons) and gravity fields.
On the basis of this interpretation, the results of double-slit experiment are explained by saying that the quantum potential contains an active information--for example the slits--and that this information manifests itself in the particles' motions.

In the double-slit experiment, a paradigm-shifting experiment of quantum theory, the effects of the slits are experienced by electrons located many centimeters away.
Perhaps the reason that evidence of macroscopic quantum effects is so few and far between is because macroscopic analogs to experiments such as the double-slit experiment are difficult to design.
In a new twist on the famous double-slit experiment, researchers have verified a basic tenet of quantum mechanics by showing that adding a third slit doesn't create additional interference between packets of light.
In SG there would be an intrinsic, unavoidable interference effect for the spin (much like in the famous double-slit experiment for position) which is lost when DIS experiments measure spin structure functions of the "proton".
