About Matter Wave (de Broglie hypothesis)

Matter Wave (de Broglie hypothesis) logo

All matter can exhibit wave-like behavior.

For example, a beam of electrons can be diffracted just like a beam of light or a water wave. Matter waves are a central part of the theory of quantum mechanics, being an example of wave–particle duality.

The concept that matter behaves like a wave is also referred to as the de Broglie hypothesis due to having been proposed by Louis de Broglie in 1924.

Matter waves are referred to as de Broglie waves.
