What reasoning let deBroglie to put forward the concept of matter waves? Show that the energy og photon is 2 lambda m c divided by h times the kinetic energy of particle.

Expert Answer:

The concept of matter waves was put forward by de Broglie in his PhD thesis in 1924.
He proposed that just as light has both wave-like and particle-like properties, electrons (matter) also have wave-like properties. 
He thought that just as wave and corpuscular properties exist for photons, it should exist for matter too.
This led him to propose the theory of matter waves.
