Is cuid lárnach de theoiric na meicnice chandamach iad tonnta damhnachaí, mar shampla de dhéacht toinne is cáithnín. Taispeánann gach damhna iompar cosúil le tonn. Mar shampla, is féidir leictreonléas a díraonadh díreach cosúil le tonn solais nó tonn uisce. I bhformhór na gcásanna, áfach, tá an tonnfhad róbheag le tionchar praiticiúil a bheith aige ar ghníomhaíochtaí ó lá go lá.

Mhol an fisiceoir Francach Louis de Broglie an coincheap go n-iompraíonn damhna mar a bheadh tonn ann sa bhliain 1924. Tugtar hipitéis de Broglie air freisin . [1] Tugtar tonnta de Broglie ar thonnta an damhna.

Is é tonnfhad de Broglie an tonnfhad, λ, a bhaineann le cáithnín ollmhór (ie, cáithnín le mais, seachas cáithnín gan mhais) agus tá baint aige lena mhóiminteam, p, trí tairiseach Planck, h :
