Conceptual Wavelength measurement

Postby Christian_Makar_2D » Mon Oct 10, 2016 2:40 pm

What is the smallest detectable wavelength? I know for an electron the wavelength is 10^-12, are there any other wavelengths like 10^-15 that can be detected?

If I am correct, the Planck Length is referred to as the smallest unit of measure in which one wavelength is measured to have of frequency of about 6.2x10^34 Hz.

I believe that Plank's constant might be the limit.

I vaguely remember Dr. Lavelle saying in class that if the wavelength was less than 10^-15 then we should consider it too small when he did the example with the wavelength of a baseball.
