A search for the de Broglie particle internal clock by means of electron channeling

Abstract : The particle internal clock conjectured by de Broglie in 1924 was investigated in a channeling experiment using a beam of ~80 MeV electrons aligned along the 〈110〉 direction of a 1 μm thick silicon crystal. Some of the electrons undergo a rosette motion, in which they interact with a single atomic row. When the electron energy is finely varied, the rate of electron transmission at 0° shows a 8% dip within 0.5% of the resonance energy, 80.874 MeV, for which the frequency of atomic collisions matches the electron's internal clock frequency. A model is presented to show the compatibility of our data with the de Broglie hypothesis.
