Quantum Mechanics: Introductory Concepts
08 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck, David K. Ferry
In this section of the Quantum Mechanics class we discuss the particlewave duality and the need for the quantization of energy to explain the blackbody radiation and the photoelectric effect. We...

Quantum Mechanics: Postulates
08 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
A physical system is generally described by three basic ingredients: states; observables; and dynamics (or law of time evolution) or, more generally, a group of physical symmetries. A classical...

Quantum Mechanics: Wavepackets
08 Jul 2008  Series  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
In physics, a wave packet is an envelope or packet containing an arbitrary number of wave forms. In quantum mechanics the wave packet is ascribed a special significance: it is interpreted to be a...

From 1 well to 2 wells to 5 wells to periodic potentials: an Exercise
02 Jul 2008  Teaching Materials  Contributor(s): Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck
This exercise demonstrates that the interaction between the wells lifts the degeneracy of the quasibound states and if in the limit we have infinite periodic potential it leads to formation of...
