What is the significance of the Triple-Slit experiment of Quantum Mechanics by Dr. Urbasi Sinha, post-doctoral student?

Badly phrased question Let's set up the DSE (Double Slit Experiment). Get a wall. Cut two slits (double slit). Put a detector at the other side. Shine a torch at the double slit. You get an interference pattern. This is what you get when a wave interferes with itself. Makes sense. But wait! What if you fire one photon at a time though the double slit? After a lot of fires, you still get an interference pattern. The only way for this to work is if the one photon passes through the two slits as a wave of probability of location, interferes with itself, thus producing an interference pattern. You can do this with electrons or any other particle, even atoms and molecules. It doesn't work with people/stuff you can see because as something's wavelength decreases, it behaves more and more like a particle. de Bruoglie wavelength is found by λ_dB=h/2π×p where h is planks constant and p is momentum (mass × velocity or Energy / speed of light). The “failier” you talk of is that if you put a detector before or after the double slit to on one of the slits to prove the particles act as waves, their “waviness”, called a wave function, “collapses” into a particle and you only detect it going though one slit and you no longer get an interference pattern.
