Website Detail Page

written by Manuel Joffre
This is a set of interactive Java applets illustrating the wave nature of quantum physics. Animations are used to illustrate propagation of wave packets, and scattering from potentials. There is also a simple illustration of a scanning tunneling microscope. These applets are part of an extensive collection of animations and simulations illustrating a large range of quantum topics, and an ongoing effort for developing a fully interactive quantum-physics class.  Both French and English versions are available.
