I know this question is a little off topic, but can someone direct a quantum mechanics illiterati to something that can explain waves in a vacuum, specifically with regard to the double slit experiment? What medium is the wave being created in, if there is a single particle? Medium is how I see waves, though I can comprehend forces like magnetism, gravity etc causing waves too. What is the wave in the double slit experiment comprised of?

A link or search term would be appreciated.
