  • The de Broglie formula for assigning a wavelength to the electron predicts the Davisson and Germer result perfectly.

  • Electrons reflected from deeper in the crystal travel a longer distance on the way out darker line, but for certain angles, that distance is a multiple of a full wavelength, and the waves leaving the crystal add in phase to give the bright spot seen by Davisson and Germer.

  • For certain angles, though, the extra distance traveled was exactly right for the waves to add in phase and produce a bright spot, which Davisson and Germer detected as a large increase in the number of electrons reflected at that angle.

  • Diffraction patterns like those seen by Davisson and Germer and Thomson are an unmistakable signature of wave behavior, as Thomas Young showed in 1799, so their experiments provided proof that de Broglie was right, and electrons have wave nature.
