I am trying to figure out when electrons are subject to an Aharonov-Bohm apparatus (the pick up a phase of +/- e(magnetic_flux)/(h_bar), how the interference fringes are shifted.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know de Broglie wavelength is given by lambda = h/p and that the fringe spacing without the vector potential is given by y=D*lambda/d where D is the distance to the screen and d is the slit spacing.

Thanks.
