Diffraction of de Broglie Waves
Journal of Progressive Research in Modern Physics and Chemistry
Bohmian mechanics considering particles as de Broglie sources of phase which propagates according to classical electrodynamics affords a methodology for evaluating the diffraction of individual particles. Treating the phasing as optical waves allows for reflections at potential energy barriers by which the phase information of an individual particle can return to direct the motion of the particle. Using this approach, crystallographic diffraction is shown to exemplify the behavior of a particle in a box, and the predictions for single and double slit diffraction also are consistent with optical and particle experiments.
