Brief Summary Of Louis De Broglie

Louis De Broglie achieved a worldwide reputation for his discovery of the wave theory of matter, for which he received the Nobel prize for physics in 1929. His work was extended into a full-fledged wave mechanics by Erwin Schrodinger and thus contributed to the creation of quantum mechanics. After an early attempt to propose a deterministic interpretation of his theory, De Broglie joined the Copenhagen schools mainstream.
