written by Christopher Grayce
This simulation illustrates the quantum bound states in a square well of variable shape. A barrier of variable height and width can be introduced into an infinite square well, and the changes in the bound eigen-states observed. A qualitative description of the properties of these states is included.

Please note that this resource requires Java.
