Davisson–Germer experiment

Davisson’s attention to detail, his resources for conducting basic research, the expertise of colleagues, and luck all contributed to the experimental success. However the initial intention of the Davisson and Germer experiment was not to confirm the de Broglie hypothesisbut rather experimengo study the surface of nickel.

The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to these gentlemen for their pioneering work. Adobe Illustrator images provided courtesy of J. Burch, The diffraction patterns simulated above compare the effects of x-rays passing through a thin foil with those of high energy electrons passing expeeimento the same medium.

Returning to the United States, Davisson made modifications to the tube design and detector mounting, adding azimuth in addition to colatitude. Retrieved from ” https: Classical mechanics Old quantum theory Bra—ket notation Hamiltonian Interference.

According to Maxwell’s equations in the late 19th century, light was thought to consist of waves of electromagnetic fields and matter was thought to consist of localized particles. A similar set of images can be viewed at Hackensack High School. The angles of maximum reflection are given by Bragg’s condition for constructive interference from an array, Bragg’s law.

At the same time George Paget Thomson independently demonstrated the same effect firing electrons through metal films to produce a diffraction pattern, and Davisson and Thomson shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in RL – An Outline: Questions still needed to be answered and experimentation continued through As Max von Laue proved inthe periodic crystal structure serves as a type of three-dimensional diffraction grating.

This, ingenerated a diffraction pattern with unexpected peaks. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. By varying the applied voltage to the electron gun, the maximum intensity of electrons diffracted by the atomic surface was found at different angles.

Part of a series on. The angular dependence of the reflected electron intensity was measured and was determined to have the same diffraction pattern as those predicted by Bragg for X-rays.

The Davisson—Germer experiment was a experiment by Clinton Davisson and Lester Germer at Western Electric later Bell Labs[1] in which electrons, scattered by the surface of a crystal of nickel metal, displayed a diffraction pattern. The detector was designed to accept only elastically scattered electrons.

This, in combination with the Compton effect discovered by Arthur Compton who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in[5] established gdrmer wave—particle duality hypothesis which was a fundamental step in quantum theory. When they started the experiment again and the electrons hit the surface, they were scattered by nickel atoms in crystal planes so the atoms were regularly spaced of the crystal. The reflection data fail to satisfy the Fxperimento relation for the same reason that the electron diffraction beams fail to coincide with their Laue beam analogues.


However, this was challenged in Albert Einstein ‘s paper on the photoelectric effectwhich described light as discrete and localized germerr of energy now called photonswhich won him the Nobel Prize in Physics in If the wavelength of the electrons is changed by changing their incident energy, the diameters of the diffraction rings change proportionally, as expected from Bragg’s equation.

The experiment consisted of firing an gegmer beam from an electron gunan electrostatic particle accelerator at a nickel crystal, perpendicular to the surface of the crystal, and measuring how the number of reflected electrons varied as the angle between the detector and the nickel surface varied.

Thomson, the son of J. A series of experiments continued through Introduction History timeline Glossary Classical mechanics Old quantum theory.

Notice how similar the patterns are to each other when the de Broglie wavelength of an electron beam equals the wavelength of the original x-rays.

Germer of the Bell Telephone Laboratory. Dymond, and Blackett, James Chadwick, and Charles Ellis — had attempted similar diffraction experiments, but were unable to generate low enough vacuums or detect the low-intensity beams needed. To avoid collisions of the electrons with other atoms on their way towards the surface, the experiment was conducted in a vacuum chamber.
