هموگش ِ دوبروی hamugeš-e de Broglie
*Fr.: équation de de Broglie *
According to the → *de Broglie hypothesis*,
which has been verified by experiments, every → *particle*
of matter, whatever its nature, has a characteristic → *wavelength*
associated with its wavelike quantum aspect. The de Broglie equation gives the
equivalent wavelength of a moving particle: *λ = h/mv*, where *h* is
→ *Planck's constant*, *m* the mass of the particle,
and *v* its velocity.
See also: → *de Broglie wavelength*,
→ *Davisson-Germer experiment*. Named after Louis Victor de Broglie (1892-1987), French physicist, creator of a new
field in physics, wave mechanics, who won the Nobel prize in physics in 1929.
