Schrödinger proved correct.. watch particles become waves in realtime. Disclaimer: No Cats or other animals were used or were harmed in this experiment!

Stunning image shows atoms transforming into quantum waves — just as Schrödinger predicted | Live Science

an animation would have been nice. Reading the details of how much manipulation they were doing to the lithium atoms, it would be easy to think they discovered something, but with all that going on how can they be sure what’s actually happening.

And probably not enough data to determine if the ‘quantum waves’ were ‘linear’ like a pulse, and which do not dissipate with time/distance (Dr Farrell discusses these in GDS) or the more traditional form (sine?) like radio waves, sound etc.

There are several vids online discussing and showing animations. here’s one. atoms transforming into quantum waves - Google Search
