We present the first experimental test that distinguishes between an Event-Based Corpuscular Model (EBCM)9) of the interaction of photons with matter and quantum mechanics. The test looks at the interference that results as a single photon passes through a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. 10) The experimental results, obtained with a low-noise single-photon source,12) agree with the predictions of standard quantum mechanics and falsify the EBCM
