Abstract

Abstract In Young's two slit interference experiment, a single light particle or “photon” imparts its energy onto a dot on one of the light fringes of the diffracted field. In this work, it will be shown that a pulse solution of the scalar wave equation, or Maxwell's equations, going through a two slit screen reproduces the aforementioned single event interference effect. This solution, called the focus wave mode, is one of a class of solutions capable of accomodating both the wave and corpuscular aspects of light.
