Standard quantum mechanics text-books discusses Born rule, which states that the probability of finding a particle in a certain region in space is given by(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

$$ |\Psi ({\bf r},t)|^2d^3r $$

Thing is, I never have seen a discussion about how you can actually measure the particle position in a given system. Do you use x-rays? How the experiment actually works? Can you refer me to papers about it or describe the experiment with details?
