Double slit experiment using Arduino and Light sensors

1. Aim and Motivation  a. Motivation What is light? Many scientists from the past have questioned this. What I learned about light through science classes and literature research is that light has two different characteristics. In summary, light exhibits wave-particle duality. Scientific observation of the nature of light is a complicated problem. Einstein\’s photoelectric experiment …
