from "Matter and Light" - Louis de Broglie

This quote was added by user505883
We thus find that in order to describe the properties of Matter, as well as those of Light, we must employ waves and corpuscles simultaneously. We can no longer imagine the electron as being just a minute corpuscle of electricity: we must associate a wave with it. And this wave is not just a fiction: its length can be measured and its interferences calculated in advance. In fact, a whole group of phenomena was in this way predicted before being actually discovered.
