Louis Victor Pierre Raymond, 7t Duke o Broglie (French: [dəbʁɔj][2][3] or [dəbʁœj] ( listen); 15 August 1892 – 19 Mairch 1987) wis a French pheesicist wha made grundbreakin contreibutions tae quantum theory. In his 1924 PhD thesis he postulatit the wave naitur o electrons an suggestit that aw matter haes wae properties. This concept is kent as the de Broglie hypothesis, an example o wave–pairticle duality, an forms a central pairt o the theory o quantum mechanics.
