MORGON, Nelson H.. O comportamento do elétron: uma análise do efeito compton e da relação de Broglie. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.7, pp.1869-1874. ISSN 1678-7064.

The De Broglie's relation was a fundamental step in the development of a wave nature for matter. Therefore, we have examined it from the perspective of the new atomic theory. This relation makes successful predictions of the stable energy levels for electrons orbiting a nucleus. The formulation of the de Broglie's relation is a fundamental application of the theory of wave-particle duality for a material particle. In this work, the direct demonstration employing the equations E = mc2 and E = hcλ, was avoided. We provide a complete analysis of this relation considering features of the special theory of relativity.

Keywords : De Broglie's relation; relativistic effects; modern atomic theory.
