Introduction To Quantum Behaviour

  1. 1. Is light a Wave or a Particle? Quantum Behaviour
  2. 2. <ul><li>We know light interferes and gives an interference pattern – just like other waves like sound and water. </li></ul>To review http://www.walter-fendt.de/ph11e/interference.htm
  3. 3. But does this explain all light behaviour..? <ul><li>What happens if we take a picture of Space tonight? </li></ul><ul><li>What would we see…? </li></ul><ul><li>Let’s see….!! </li></ul>
  4. 8. Wave or Particle??? <ul><li>If light was a wave, surely the photo would just get progressively brighter in ALL areas… </li></ul><ul><li>Does this mean that it is a particle????? </li></ul>
