Abstract

Although the resolution to the wave-particle paradox has been known
for 80 years,1,2 it is seldom presented. Briefly, the resolution
is that material particles and photons are the quanta of extended
spatially continuous but energetically quantized fields. But because
the resolution resides in quantum field theory and is not usually
spelled out in ordinary language, it is neither generally understood
nor generally taught, especially not in the context of nonrelativistic
quantum physics. The purpose of this paper is to provide that resolution
and to suggest that we teach introductory quantum physics from this
viewpoint.
