Physics@FOM Veldhoven 2012, Alain Aspect, Tuesday evening lecture 'From Einstein to Wheeler: wave particle duality brought to light'

Since the early days of quantum mechanics, and still in Feynman's lectures on physics, interference between spatially separated trajectories of a single particle has not ceased to fascinate physicists. I will present a realization in optics of that GedankenExperiment, realized with a true single photon source. It has even allowed us to implement the Wheeler's delayed choice experiment, emphasizing the weirdness of wave particle duality for a single particle.

The Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) promotes, co-ordinates and finances fundamental physics research in the Netherlands. Physics@FOM Veldhoven is a large conference that takes place each year in January. It provides a topical overview of Dutch physics research.
