I really love any instructional that deals with the dual/single slit experiment, and this one (which caries on from his last video) is no exception. Here we see an example again of the 1801 Thomas Young experiment, which passed a single photon against a dual slit plate. It wasn't until the early 1900s that light energy is not as evenly spread as one would expect in a wave. It acted more like "packets" of energy, hence the Photon. Check out the informative video below:
