Who discovered that electrons behave like waves?

Wave-particle duality was first suggested by Louis de Broglie about a century ago. This raises the question of whether electrons (and other tiny particles) are particles or waves. Many observations in atomic physics can be treated using the particle model on its own.

Also question is, who created wave particle duality?

The pilot wave model, originally developed by Louis de Broglie and further developed by David Bohm into the hidden variable theory proposes that there is no duality, but rather a system exhibits both particle properties and wave properties simultaneously, and particles are guided, in a deterministic fashion, by the

When was wave particle duality discovered?

As will be clear from the following, the Nobel Committee for Physics did not recognise the particle nature of light neither when awarding the 1921 Prize (awarded in 1922) to Albert Einstein "for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect," nor when in 1927 awarding Arthur Holly Compton the Physics Prize "for

What is meant by the wave particle duality of electrons?

Definition of Wave-Particle Duality. The behaviors of the electron does not allow for it to be observable as a particle and as a wave. The two sided nature of the electron is known as the Wave-Particle Duality: The property of particles behaving as waves and the property of waves behaving as particles as well as waves.
