The dual nature of matter and the dual nature of radiation were revolutionary concepts of physics. At the beginning of the twentieth century, scientists unravelled one of the best-kept secrets of nature – the wave particle duality or the dual nature of matter and radiation. Everything is a wave and a particle! This chapter will take you from the predictability of Classical Physics to the magical realm of Quantum Physics!
