The precise methodology of Richard Feynman's famous double-slit thought-experiment a cornerstone of quantum mechanics that showed how electrons behave as both a particle and a wave has been followed in full for the very first time.

Although the particle-wave duality of electrons has been demonstrated in a number of different ways since Feynman popularised the idea in 1965, none of the experiments have managed to fully replicate the methodology set out in Volume 3 of Feynman's famous Lectures on Physics.
