This site consists of a wide array of quantum mechanics visualizations. For a
given topic the complexity increases as the user progresses. In many cases the
level of interaction also increases as one progresses. Many of the topics are
clearly displayed while keeping things simple. Most of the material is
qualitative in nature, but some contain quantitative information.
The ideas illustrated are among the most central to the development of quantum
mechanics. The author makes innovative use of color to help visualize abstract
concepts. Notable examples include all applets relating to 2D boxes and
oscillators, and the complex and real visualization of spherical harmonics.
Difficult and interesting concepts are also illustrated, such as a Young's
double slit experiment with individual photons.
Those old enough to remember the old "film loops" will appreciate the time
This wonderful collection of applets will be useful to teachers and students in
any introductory quantum mechanics course.
