This is a pair of interactive Java applets illustrating three-dimensional quantum states. Spherical harmonics are shown projected on a unit sphere. Both the magnitude of Y(L,m) + Y(L,-m), and the complex states with color-coded phase can be viewed. In the other simulation, the states of a Carbon 60 molecule are simulated using a Huckel model. The 60x60 matrix is diagonalized to show the energy levels and electronic states of the molecule. 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.
