In 1923 Louis de Broglie in his three research papers carried a significant development of the idea of Einstein about the dual nature of light.
As mentioned previously, the solutions of the STCED wave equations are similar to Louis de Broglie's "double solution".

For those who get excited over the grandeur and mystique of one of the most debated realities of Physics -- the ' Quantum Theory' -- the book cruises past the lives and works of old masters and young turks -- Ernest Rutherford, Prince Louis De Broglie, Wolfgang Pauli, Erwin Schrodinger and Arnold Sommerfield, to name a few.
Louis de Broglie made a similar argument regarding the material atom: the concept of the classical atom, when interrogated, collapses upon itself to offer a glimpse of wave-particle duality.
Il obtint son doctorat de l'Universite de Szeged en 1946, avant d'entreprendre des etudes postdoctorales a Paris sous la direction de Louis de Broglie et de Raymond Daudel.
Schrodinger was inspired by the French physicist Louis De Broglie, who suggested that elementary particles have associated with them waves whose frequency is a multiple of h.
(Indeed, we now know that Bohm was not the first to do so: Louis de Broglie's pilot wave theory presented at the 1927 Solvay Conference achieved the complete first-order version of the 'Bohm' theory in 3N-dimensional configuration space.) Yet instead of generating much interest or excitement, for the better part of the last forty-five years this discovery has been systematically ignored and misunderstood.
Louis de Broglie, a twentieth-century French physicist, formulated the radical notion that moving particles of matter can behave like waves.
Einstein and Louis de Broglie put forward alternatives that they believed were more realistic or more complete.
Os estudos com os raios X e os artigos de Einstein de 1905 e 1909 sobre a "radiacao negra" (3) tiveram particular importancia para os primeiros trabalhos do fisico frances Louis de Broglie sobre os quanta de luz, publicados entre os anos 1922 e 1924.
The STCED deformation wave displacements solution is similar to Louis de Broglie's "double solution" [18,19].
Louis de Broglie posited the idea then dropped it, but David Bohm picked it up during the 1950s, dusted it off, and showed that Bohmian (not Broglian!) mechanics agrees with all quantum experiments done up to now.
