    • Abstract

       

      De Broglie’s hypothesis of the dual nature of matter was confirmed experimentally independently by Davisson-Germer and G. P. Thomson. But most of the textbooks (e.g. [1]) discuss Davisson–Germer experiment. In this article, G. P. Thomson’s experiment of electron diffraction is discussed.
