I've recently been refreshing my memory on Quantum Mechanics. I found some interesting layman's material on the famous double slit experiment, but am having a hard time finding original material, especially for more recent experiments.
For those that don't know, the double slit experiment is where various natural entities (such as light, electrons, photons, etc...) are projected at a single slit and then two slits (which are very close together). This method was first used to determine that light was a wave and not a particle, and later that light has characteristics of BOTH a wave and a particle.
I'm interested in professional journal articles for experiments that involved detectors situated at the slits, as well as more recent experiments that have involved entities at or above the mass of protons. The experiment showing Fullerene exhibits wave-particle behavior would especially be worthwhile.
I can't find any of these online, unless I have a membership to one organization or the other. So anyone that could get me a copy would be of great help.
I'm not interested in personally debating this topic though I suppose someone could debate the value of these experiments, or their meaning. If people want to debate, I'd be happy to watch.
This should probably go in short subjects?
