First Ever Photo of Light As Both Particle and Wave.

“This experiment demonstrates that, for the first time ever, we can film quantum mechanics – and its paradoxical nature – directly.” - Fabrizio Carbone, Ph.D., Lead Scientist, Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland

This is a groundbreaking, first-ever image of light behaving simultaneously as both a wave and a stream of particles. This historic image was made by scientists at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne, Switzerland, led by Fabrizio Carbone. The team used electrons to image a standing wave of light. Phys.org explains: "As the electrons pass close to the standing wave of light, they 'hit' the light's photons particles, changing photon 'energy packet' speeds that also showed up in the image as particles."

  • Thank you, Ed Schultz.

    I have a new byline. I am the person who is going to destroy China. I have committed to it. We're going to do this. It started here.
