A Macroscopic-scale Wave-particle Duality : the Role of a Wave Mediated Path Memory
Speaker(s): Yves Couder
Abstract: It is usually assumed that the quantum wave-particle duality can have no counterpart in classical physics. We were driven into revisiting this question when we found that a droplet bouncing on a vibrated bath could couple to the surface wave it excites. It thus becomes a self-propelled "walker", a s... read more
