Homework Help: Young's Double Slit - Low intensity

  1. Mar 15, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Having recently completed an experiment on Young's double slit experiment for both high and low intensity light; I am having trouble writing conclusions in the report. In one part of the experiment I know I was firing only one photon at a time down the tube, and I achieved an interference pattern. I know how to describe this if my particle was an electron with a quantum wavefunction approach - however there doesn't seem to be such a wavefunction for a photon. Is this correct?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    how you could do it? and how the photon was counted?
