This, in combination with the Experiment effect discovered by Arthur Compton who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in established the wave—particle duality hypothesis which was a fundamental step in quantum theory.

Views Read Edit View history. During the experiment, air accidentally entered the chamber, producing an oxide film on the nickel surface.
They expected that because of the small size of electrons, even the smoothest crystal surface would be too rough and thus the electron beam would experience diffused reflection. Returning to the United States, Davisson made modifications to the tube design and detector mounting, adding azimuth in addition to colatitude.
This confirmed the hypothesisadvanced by Louis de Broglie inof wave-particle duality, and was an experimental milestone in the creation of quantum mechanics.
To Davisson’s surprise, Max Born gave a lecture that used diffraction curves from Davisson’s research which he had published in Science that year, using the favisson as confirmation of the de Broglie hypothesis.
Davisson and Germer’s actual objective was to study the surface of a piece of nickel by directing a beam of electrons at the surface and observing how many electrons bounced off at various angles. On a break, Davisson attended the Oxford meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in summer Introduction History timeline Glossary Experimenti mechanics Old quantum theory. RL – An Outline: Grrmer angular dependence of the reflected electron intensity was measured and was determined to have the same diffraction pattern as those predicted by Bragg for X-rays.
Resource Lesson Famous Experiments: In Louis de Broglie presented his thesis concerning the wave—particle duality theory, which proposed the idea that all matter displays the wave—particle duality of photons. As Davisson and Germer state gemer their follow-up paper, “These results, including the failure of the data to satisfy the Bragg formula, are in accord with those previously obtained in our experiments on electron diffraction.
The Nobel Foundation According to Maxwell’s equations in the late 19th century, light was thought to consist of waves of electromagnetic fields and matter was thought to consist of localized particles.
At this meeting, he learned of the recent advances in quantum mechanics. Davisson began work in to study electron bombardment and secondary electron emissions.
Particles and Forces TB – 38A: It wasn’t until the s that experimemto tubes were adequately made germmer and available to expand on the electron diffraction technique, but since that time, scientists have used LEED diffraction to explore the surfaces of crystallized elements and the spacing between atoms. However the initial intention of the Davisson and Germer experiment was not to confirm the de Broglie hypothesisbut rather to study the surface of nickel.
The diffraction patterns simulated above compare the effects of x-rays passing through a thin foil with those of high energy electrons passing through the same medium. When the Davisson and Germer experiment was performed, the results of the experiment were explained by Elsasser’s proposition.

Thomson found patterns that resembled the x-ray patterns made with powdered polycrystalline samples. Burch, The diffraction patterns simulated above compare the effects of x-rays passing through a thin foil with those of high energy electrons passing through the same medium.
Part of a series on. The experiment consisted of firing an electron beam from an electron gunan electrostatic particle accelerator at a nickel crystal, perpendicular to the epxerimento of the crystal, and measuring how the number of reflected electrons varied as the angle between the detector and the nickel surface varied.
These experiments by Davisson and Germer and by Thomson proved that de Broglie’s waves are not simply mathematical conveniences, but have observable physical effects. Davisson and Germer’s accidental discovery of the diffraction of electrons was the first direct evidence confirming de Broglie’s hypothesis that particles can have wave properties as well.
The Davisson—Germer experiment was a experiment by Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer at Western Electric later Bell Labs in which electrons, scattered by the surface of a crystal of nickel metal, displayed a diffraction pattern.
