Is there a minimum possible wavelength? E.g. if we have a thin, inelastic string of length ~ 10^{-6}m, fixed at both ends, according to QM, is there minimum wavelength for an oscillatory mode on that string? (All waves on the string can be assumed to travel at the speed of light.)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would think so, because length is quantized in QM right?
