What is Wave Particle Duality?

This video looks at the history of ideas behind the concept of wave particle duality, with a particular focus on the work of Louis de Broglie and the matter-wave hypothesis.

After discussing the groundbreaking experimental work of Thomas Young and the concept of wave interference, a brief discussion is given to Einstein's explanation of the photoelectric effect.

This provides a launch point for a discussion of de Broglie's matter-wave hypothesis, and includes a detailed analysis of Bohr's model of the atom, as well as the interpretation of the de Broglie wave function using the famous double slit experiment.
