  1. Quantum Mechanics: Hydrogen Atom and Electron Spin

    09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    A hydrogen atom is an atom of the chemical element hydrogen. The electrically neutral atom contains a single positively-charged proton and a single negatively-charged electron bound to the nucleus by the Coulomb force. The most abundant isotope, hydrogen-1, protium, or light hydrogen, contains...

  2. Quantum Mechanics: The story of the electron spin

    09 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    One of the most remarkable discoveries associated with quantum physics is the fact that elementary particles can possess non-zero spin. Elementary particles are particles that cannot be divided into any smaller units, such as the photon, the electron, and the various quarks. Theoretical and...
