It is difficult to observe a one-particle pattern
But if you are interested in things like whether there is
an experimental smooth, Yin-Yang type :-), transition between
the particle-like and the wave-like behaviour, try the links
Greenberger and Yasin wrote P^2 + V^2 = 1, where P is the
*probability* for the particle taking one of the two possible
paths, and V the visibility of the fringes.
In other words, the Greenberger and Yasin relation states that
the "entity" has a double nature (wave-like,particle-like) and
that there is a "smooth" transition between one and the other
Following Greenberger and Yasin, we must restate the
complementarity principle as *coexistence* between particle-like
and wave-like properties, and not as reciprocal *exclusion*.
(Btw, it is well known that Heisenberg was against the
complementarity principle, since in matrix mechanics there
are no waves at all ... It is also well known that the
Bohr-Heisenberg debate, on this point, was very hard
