The double-slit experiment, is a demonstration that matter and energy can display characteristics of both waves and particles. The basic concept of this experiment is very common to the scientist . If we send particles through one slit, we will get a line on the detector. If we use two slits and then fire the particles, we will get two lines on the detector. But what will happen if we send wave instead ? The answer is simple, we will find interference patterns on the detector.
Now lets jump to the quantum world, and fire electrons through the slit. You know electron is a small particle too.
