Website Detail Page

written by Kristel Michielsen and Hans De Raedt
This web page illustrates the interference fringes of a quantum wavepacket, using 3D animations.  Basic concepts and phenomena are shown using simulations rather than complex mathematics.  Single slit and double slit diffraction are described and shown, along with an artist's rendition of an experiment.
