i'm trying to understand light and photons but some odd questions popping in my head. Hope i frame the questions right and please try to understand Debroglie told that matter can exist as waves and it does - its proved that electrons do have wave nature and so do many other small particles i think about light as a beam of photons and like electrons, protons , neutrons it also has a wave nature. But this is what confuses me : electrons , protons have wave nature but their wave nature do not contain electric and magnetic fields Its only with these photons that have this special wave nature consisting of electric and magnetic fields ? Also why is only light energy released ( i.e. photons) when electrons jump?
