two-slit experiment

two-slit experiment

[¦tü ‚slit ik′sper·ə·mənt]
(quantum mechanics)
A thought experiment that demonstrates the essence of the wave-particle duality, in which radiation (either light or massive particles) passes a diaphragm with two openings, and interference fringes can be observed behind the diaphragm even when the intensity of radiation is so low that the photons or massive particles can be detected one by one.

They can also contribute to an understanding of the two-slit experiments, somewhat in the sense of the Copenhagen school of Bohr and where an individual photon makes a transition between the present modes, in a form of "photon oscillations" including both a particle behavior and that of wave interference, as stated by the author [19].
