An experiment on electron wave-particle duality including a Planck constant measurement

An alternative approach with respect to the standard double-slit experiment is presented to introduce the wave-like behavior of electrons. This simple and pedagogical experiment requires a commercial transmission electron microscope and a ferromagnetic film transparent to electrons. It allows in addition the measurement of Planck's constant.
