Moving particles; such as electrons, protons, and neutrons; have wave properties as described by the de Broglie equation:
= h / p
where is wavelength, h is Planck's constant (6.62618x10-34 J·s), and p is the momentum of the particle. Beams of particles can therefore show wave effects such as diffraction.
