September 6, 2018

For 90 years physicists have known that incompatibly opposite properties are inherent in all elementary particle—such as electrons, photons, and mesons—and any of them can be observed to have either property at any time. Now University of Rochester researchers say they’ve resolved this weird and inescapable wave-particle duality.
