Principles of Quantum Mechanics Physics 123 02/28/20 Lecture XV 1 Concepts De Broigle waves Heisenbergs uncertainty principle Schrdingers equation Particle in a box Boundary conditions Unitarity condition 02/28/20 Lecture XV 2 Wave Particle duality If light exhibits both wave and particle properties

then particles (e.g. electrons) must also exhibit wave properties e.g. interference. Matter (de Broglie) waves =h/ph/p p=h/pmv 02/28/20 Lecture XV 3 Interference of electrons Send electron beam (a lot of electrons) on crystal structure Interference pattern is determined by h/p Double slits distance d~1nm Interference pattern Maxima (more e): Minima (no e): 02/28/20 d sin =h/p m m=h/p0,1,2,3,. d sin =h/p (m+ ) m+ ) Lecture XV 4
