Main Document

QM Measurement Package 

written by Mario Belloni and Wolfgang Christian

The QM Measurement Launcher package is a self-contained file for the teaching of the measurement (E, x, and p) of energy eigenstates and their superpositions in quantum mechanics.  The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a curricular materials.  One can choose from several pre-set states to perform measurements on: energy eigenstates, two-state superpositions, and wave packets.

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

The QM Measurement 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.
