  • Best Knowledge with best score

Requirements

  • Students must have completed 8.03 Physics III: Vibrations and Waves (or 6.013 Electromagnetics and Applications) and 18.03 Differential Equations (or 18.034 Honors Differential Equations) with grades of C or higher.

Who is the target audience?

  • Undergraduate Students

Description

This course covers the experimental basis of quantum physics. Topics include: photoelectric effect, Compton scattering, photons, Franck-Hertz experiment, the Bohr atom, electron diffraction, de Broglie waves, and the wave-particle duality of matter and light. Introduction to wave mechanics: Schrödinger's equation, wave functions, wave packets, probability amplitudes, stationary states, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle, and zero-point energies. Solutions to Schrödinger's equation in one dimension: transmission and reflection at a barrier, barrier penetration, potential wells, the simple harmonic oscillator. Schrödinger's equation in three dimensions: central potentials and introduction to hydrogenic systems.
