Experimental Verification of De Broglie Equation
The revolutionary postulate of de-Broglie has been confirmed by Davisson and Germer’sexperiment in 1927. Similarly, experiments carried out independently by G.P. Thomson in 1928 and later Stern observed that the beams of heavier particles (like H2, He…. etc) showed diffraction patterns when reflected from the surfaces of crystals.
Applications of De-Broglie Concept:
The main applications of de Broglie’s concept are
1. The development of the electron microscope.
2. It theoretically supports Bohr’s second postulate.
