Abstract
We discuss an experimental setup where two laser-driven atoms spontaneously emit photons and each and every photon causes a "click" at a point on a screen. By deriving the probability density for an emission into a certain direction from basic quantum mechanical principles we predict a spatial interference pattern. Similarities and differences with the classical double-slit experiment are discussed.
