    Gerhard Paulus of Texas A&M University and co-workers in Berlin have developed a new look for Young's double-slit experiment. Interference pattern has been observed with electrons that pass through a double slit in time, not space, as a result of being ejected from an atom at one of two possible times by a laser pulse.

    Golly! This thing must be in at least 3 different threads/places in PF already! And I still haven't seen an exact citation yet. Can someone provide a citation on where this was published, or about to be published? PhysicsWeb usually is good in providing the source of their news, but for some odd reason, they neglected this one, and Paulus webpage made no reference of this either.

    Sorry for the repeat. I just saw another thread with the same topic.

    You can contact Peter Rodgers, the Author of this story, and ask him about the reference.
