Louis de Broglie Realistic Research Program and the Experimental Detection of Quantum Waves
Em: Annales de la Fondation Louis de Broglie
We give a brief historical review of Louis de Broglie realistic research program as developed in Lisbon’s research group about nonlinear quantum physics. We propose and discuss “yes-no” type experiments to physically detect quantum waves, independently of the associated corpuscles. Thus, deciding if they are real physical perturbations or mere probability waves. We finally present a possible technological application for the detection of such waves in quantum communication.
