Ghent Bishop Maurice-Jean Madeleine de Broglie said of her: 'She saves more souls by her inner life of union with God than her outward apostolate.'
With an on-the-shoulders-of-giants approach, he lightheartedly dances from Isaac Newton's great understanding of gravity and light to Thomas Young proving that light was wave-like to Louis de Broglie's notion that light and, indeed, all matter somehow have the characteristics of both particles and waves to Faraday, Maxwell, and then Ernest Rutherford discovering the nucleus of an atom to Einstein doing his supernaturally astounding things -- onward, upward, inexorably forward to other prominent current-day scientists.

de Broglie showed that a particular homogeneous refractive and dispersive material may cause the tunnelling particle to reverse its velocity with respect to its wave phase propagating velocity [2].
of de Broglie electronic half-waves there are stochastic by longitudinal and radial quantized periodic electronic wavepackets (EWP) each of which contains one relatively <<hot>> and <<cold>> areas of the longitudinal or radial macroscopic dimensions.

In fact, the basic idea behind it was formulated in 1927 by Louis de Broglie in a model he called "pilot wave theory".
The topics include the genesis of wave mechanics, Schrodinger's cat and her laboratory cousins, digital and open system quantum simulation with trapped ions, the Bohr-Schrodinger dialogue on quantum discontinuity, and a few reasons why Louis de Broglie discovered Broglie's waves yet did not discover Schrodinger's equation.
