Instead of slits cut into a solid structure. Use 3 particle beams spaced equivalent to the normal set up to recreate the 2 slits. I know what you're going to say, the beams will cause the single wave/particle to collapse/cancel and travel through one or the other slit and we won't see the interference pattern. But it might be worth a shot.
