### Measurable wavelengths

In class, some of the examples asked if the calculated wavelengths could be detected in a lab experiment but what value can actually be classified as a measurable wavelength to have wave properties?

In my 10-11 lecture, he said when the value is x10^-18 or more, someone asked that question too in my class. However, not sure what makes that value suddenly detectable as compared to other values, like if it is a specific threshold or boundary of a value.

In the 12-1 lecture Dr. Lavelle also said wavelike properties are measurable when the De Brogile wavelength is at least (some value)x10^-18.
