Lewis, interference, corpuscular light
Proceedings of the National Academy of Science
In an earlier number of these PROCEEDINGS, Professor G. N. Lewis adopted an extreme form of the light quantum theory, in which the light quanta are assumed to travel in straight lines except when deflected by matter, the facts of interference being explained by the assumption that the quanta do not go to those places where the wave theory forbids the action of radiation.
