Are there two waves in the double slit experiment or is the diffraction pattern simply the quantum field (medium) causing a single cohered wave to land where it does?
This ends all other interpretations.
If a wave is going through both slits ..it is the same wave, not two separate waves. Interference isn't happening. It's just the path the quantum field assigns when there is a double slit.
The bare vertical gaps are a shadow of the sliver between the double slits. A path of diffraction is much stronger for a coherent wave. The gaps in the pattern is repeating the use of the sliver several times.
The physical water waves doing a double slit was just a coincidence.
Can we prove the sliver between slits in the double slit is projected onto the final panel by changing the slivers shape? I know the distance between slits is important but is there any wiggle room? Would this kill the idea of wave interference?
