In the early part of the twentieth century when it was realized that the massless photon had particle-like properties, de Broglie
figured therefor that the massive electron must have wave-like properties-- and the de Broglie
matter wave was born [1, p.55].
Louis de Broglie
and the discovery of the electron waves.
Louis de Broglie
posited the idea then dropped it, but David Bohm picked it up during the 1950s, dusted it off, and showed that Bohmian (not Broglian!) mechanics agrees with all quantum experiments done up to now.
They explain the contributions of physicists such as Planck, Einstein, Heisenberg, de Broglie
, Schrodinger, and Born.
Winehouse's face has been put on French artist Ingres's 1853 work Princess Albert de Broglie
These include Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Louie de Broglie
, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger.
Three years earlier, de Broglie
had suggested that particles such as electrons might have wave aspects (see 1923).

As discussed in , the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle arises because x and p form a Fourier transform pair of variables at the quantum level due to the momentum p of a quantum particle being proportional to the de Broglie
wave number k of the particle.
He sets out the principles of photonics, stressing the four key scientific concepts of the Boltzmann relationship, the Planck equation relating energy to frequency, the de Broglie
relationship equating momentum to wavelength, and the conservation of energy and momentum.
suggested that electrons and indeed all particles had wave aspects (see 1923).
The wavelenth of an atom, known as its de Broglie
wavelenth, is based on its momentum and can be 10,000 times shorter than that of visible light.
