Video 1. Electron Interference by the Italian National Research Council (1976) Source.
Institutional video about the 1974 single electron experiment by Merli, Missiroli, Pozzi from the University of Bologna.
Uses an electron biprism as in electron holography inside a transmission electron microscope.
Shows them manually making the biprism by drawing a fine glass wire and coating it with gold.
Then actually show the result live on a television screen, where you see the interference patterns only at higher electron currents, and then on photographic film.
This was elected "the most beautiful experiment" by readers of Physics World in 2002.
Italian title: "Interferenza di elettroni". Goddammit, those Italian cinematographers can make even physics look exciting!
