The study of the dual nature of the electron is proposed, with alterations in initial double-slit experiment. We are aware of mysterious nature of the quantum particles, particularly electrons. The particle behaves as wave, but upon observation, the wave-function of the electron is collapsed. No longer is an interference pattern observed, which in a sense, limits us and binds us to what we can measure and what we cannot, with current detection methods. In the double slit experiment, a source of high-intensity light is used to measure the position of the electrons, which leads to the collapse of the wave-function. An investigation is proposed to observe the effects of the low-intensity electric field on the duality of electron.
