In attempting to explain QT to interested students, it seems like light waves in the double-slit experiment, and in the Three Polarizer Paradox seem "mixed-up" about whether you are dealing with one of Maxwell's waves, or one of Schrodinger's waves. Which is it?-And how can we know? Einstein called the waves of Schrodinger's equation "A ghost field" since they are probability waves. Please explain this apparent confusion between the real wave and the ghost wave.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
