Angular frequency (De Broglie dispersion relation in nonrelativistic limit)


Elementary particles, atomic nuclei, atoms, and even molecules behave in some contexts as matter waves. According to the de Broglie, angular frequency and wavenumber are connected through a dispersion relation in the nonrelativistic limit.
