Quantum physics has by now reached an impressive theoretical and experimental maturity. And still, it puzzles the classically educated mind that quantum physics exhibits various dualities, like for instance the wave-particle duality, which are in contradiction to our daily experience: Heisenberg’s uncertainty relation between conjugate variables is a well-known formulation of this fact and it appears therefore appropriate to contribute to an issue in commemoration of Heisenberg’s 100th birthday with a review of recent wave-particle duality experiments with large molecules.
