Photons are blue-shifted as they accelerate in free-fall toward the earth. When an electron or positron is conceptualized as a wave using de Broglie's equation, are the de Broglie wavelengths of the electron or positron shortened (blue-shifted) as they accelerate toward the earth in free-fall? In other words do gravitational fields effect the quantum de broglie representation of matter-waves?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
