The Wave-Particle Face-off

6 nature of light debate

Is light a wave or a stream of particles? This has been debated for hundreds of years. From Newton’s Corpuscular Theory, to Huygen’s Principle. Young’s double slit experiment seemed to have settled matters, until Einstein’s photoelectric effect came along.

In this comic, pugilists from the wave and particle camps fight each other to the death, throwing deadly wave and particle weapons at each other. Haha.
