In science:

Despite fierce resistance of Einstein, Schr¨odinger and De Brogli, Born expressed the new quantum canon, repeated by the “mainstream” ever after , as follows (cf.
Indeterminism and Randomness Through Physics
The linear quantum approach is defined in terms of de Broglie’s plane waves and free-particle Schr¨odinger equation.

It is defined by a continuous superposition of de Broglie’s plane waves, ‘physically’ associated with a free quantum particle of unit mass.
Adaptive Wave Models for Option Pricing Evolution: Nonlinear and Quantum Schr\"odinger Approaches
Thus, we consider the ψ−function describing a single de Broglie’s plane wave, with the wave number k , linear momentum p = σk , wavelength λk = 2π/k , angular frequency ωk = σk2 /2, and oscillation period Tk = 2π/ωk = 4π/σk2 .

Their work was a landmark result in the the development of quantum theory as it provided the critical confirmation of Louis de Broglie’s hypothesis.
Quantum interference of molecules -- probing the wave nature of matter
Clinton Davission and Lester Germer performed the conclusive experimental test of Louis de Broglie’s hypothesis in 1927 at Bell Labs.
Quantum interference of molecules -- probing the wave nature of matter
This approach coinsides in general with de Broglie’s idea . I will build our model in the spirit of two main approaches: 1.
Quantum theory requires gravity and superrelativity
Therefore one has not only the contraction of de Broglie’s wave length but to the increasing dimensionality of a configuration space.
Underlying Field Structure of Matter
For a detailed analysis of de Broglie’s construction of pilot-wave theory, as well as for a full discussion of the respective contributions of de Broglie and Bohm, see ref. (which also includes an English translation of de Broglie’s 1927 Solvay report).
Astrophysical and Cosmological Tests of Quantum Theory
We can mention De Broglies’ theory of double solution which was later elaborated in Bohmian mechanics, stochastic electrodynamics (SED), semiclassical model for quantum optics, Nelson’s stochastic QM and its generalization by Davidson and, recently, ‘t Hooft’s model, see, e.g., –, , , also cf. V. I.

According to the de Brogli hypothesis it will effectively behave as a wave with the de Brogli wave length λ = h/p, p being the impulse of the particle.
Uncertainty relations on the slit and Fisher information
According to the standard interpretation, this improvement is viewed as the effect of a rescaling of the de Brogli wavelength due to the n times greater mass of interfering “quasi” particles6,7,8 .

De Broglie’s theory was then independently rediscovered in 1952 by David Bohm, and clarified and elaborated in the 60’s and 70’s by John Bell.
