Re: Where to buy a Double-Slit Experiment setup

Hi,

Is there any company selling double-slit experiments kit? Any variety
will do although I prefer those which can emit one photon or electron
at a time. I'd like to see the interference patterns after hours of
such single particle emission.

If you really want to see one photon at a time, that's going to
cost some money -- you need both a good source and some
really sensitive detectors. TeachSpin sells a set-up -- see
http://www.teachspin.com/instruments/two_slit/index.shtml
-- but it's expensive.

You might look at http://people.whitman.edu/~beckmk/QM/
for ideas of setting something up yourself.
