The QM Superposition Launcher package is a self-contained file for the teaching of the time evolution and visualization of energy eigenstates and their superpositions in quantum mechanics.  The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and curricular materials.  One can choose from several real-time visualizations, such as the position and momentum expectation values and the Wigner quasi-probability distribution for position and momentum.

The QM Superposition package includes two supplemental documents (see below) that contain curricular worksheets in support of the package.

The QM Superposition package is an Open Source Physics curricular package written for the teaching of quantum mechanics.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the osp_superposition.jar file will run the package if Java is installed.  Other quantum mechanics packages are also available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Quantum Mechanics.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java.
