Abstract: In this short paper a new thought experiment has been introduced to illustrate the famous Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle based on Otto-Wiener’s experiment (1890) associated with standing light waves. This illustration is quite easy as well as far more realizing than all other thought experiments generally found in textbooks. In this work seeding of quantum nature of light has been done with the Otto-Wiener’s experiment. May be this new thought experiment will help the students to understand the Heisenberg’s principle in a better way and also enhance their interest of learning quantum mechanics from the beginning of their course.
