This is a great experiment to recreate the conditions and results of one of the most important experiments in quantum mechanics. It is also a great way to learn about the physical properties of electrons and how they interact with surfaces. The adjustable parameters make it easy to adjust the readings and output of the electrons and the diffraction pattern. Overall, this is a great experiment for students of physics and quantum mechanics.

From the developer:
Simulate the original experiment that proved that electrons can behave as waves. Watch electrons diffract off a crystal of atoms, interfering with themselves to create peaks and troughs of probability.
