Description: We suggest two possible experiments to verify the mysterious passing of single photon through both the slits simultaneously. The first experiment aims to measure polarization of photons reaching the screen using polarization detectors fixed on the screen on both sides of the midway line made up of locus of points equidistant from both the slits and further using two types of synchronization setups. Again, using the same two types of synchronization setups, we suggest the second experiment which is based on a simple idea, justified by uncertainty principle. We suggest that we can distinguish between photons that have definitely gone through both the slits simultaneously and those other photons that have gone only through any single slit, either through the one on the left side or through the other on the right side, at a time. We fix in the second experiment photon detectors on the screen on both sides of the midway line made up of locus of points equidistant from both the slits. These experiments aim at achieving experimental confirmation for complementarity principle due to N. Bohr.
