    no.

    you have, among others,

    - single particle single slit
    - mach-zehnder
    - delayed choice quantum eraser
    - two-photon interference experiments
    - i guess even quantum entanglement
    - there are many ways to come up with new experiments/ideas

    No, it is just the "textbook" example. If you ask me it is not even a good example since people tend to get hung about the nature of photons etc., which is in no way relevant.
