Sat, 06 Feb 2016 00:42:54 +0000HUBzero - The open source platform for scientific and educational collaborationThe quantum harmonic oscillator is the quantum mechanical analogue of the classical harmonic oscillator. It is one of the most important model systems in quantum mechanics because an arbitrary potential can be approximated as a harmonic potential at the vicinity of a stable equilibrium point. Furthermore, it is one of the few quantum mechanical systems for which a simple exact solution is known.
The energy spectrum of a harmonic oscillator is noteworthy for three reasons. Firstly, the energies ...nanoHUB.orgsupport@nanohub.orgnoAQME, energy levels, Harmonic oscillator, nanoelectronicsDragica Vasileskaen-gbCopyright 2016 nanoHUB.orgResources
