    there are several phenomenon which depict both light is a wave and particle nature. Polarization proves that light is transverse in nature.

    The classic experiment that demonstrates the wave-like nature of light is the Young's double slit experiment: http://www.studyphysics.ca/newnotes/20/unit04_light/chp1719_light/lesson58.htm
