Now, few people doubt that electrons have wave properties in addition to corpuscular ones. In addition to the laws of conduction and the tunneling effect, which indirectly confirm the dual nature of the electron, there is also direct evidence of its wave properties. These are experiments that have revealed interference and diffraction in electron beams and in individual electrons. Among such experiments, the so-called Ramsauer-Townsend experiment is known as the most convincing and simple one.
