I hear some reasons that photon exist in 4D space-time, wave function not and so on.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But, an electron can be described with de Broglie waving and we can use wave function to describe electron. Frequency of the wave function is the same as energy/\hbar and k of wave function is the same as that of de Broglie k. But why this is not appropriate for the photon. Maybe because photon does not have rest energy?

What is connection between wave function and de Broglie waving is described in
