But if the free-space particle is accompanied by a PV de Broglie wave, the diffraction of that wave through A and B, and its interaction with the particle core, easily explains the oscillatory curve on the detection screen.
As a first approximation then, the electron and proton de Broglie waves are planewaves propagating within the PV continuum.

That is, the classical concept of two particles exerting a force on each other corresponds to the quantum mechanical concept that the de Broglie wave of one particle influences the de Broglie wave of another particle.

It is well known, in quantum mechanics, a matter wave is determined by electromagnetic wave-particle duality or de Broglie wave of matter [7].
The third objective is to use the van der Wls interaction as an extremely sensitive probe of the spatial distribution of the de Broglie wave of an atom in a cavity.
Note 3: When incident on the crystalline foil, the electron beam must ensure a coherent and plane front of de Broglie waves.
