Spectroscopic Simulator

Logo for Spectroscopic Simulator
We chose to develop this applet first since it covers an aspect of the course that is based on relatively simple mathematics, but which students seem to find very confusing. At this point in the course, students have learned the basic aspects of quantum mechanics, namely, that the energy associated with the motions of molecules can not be assigned arbitrarily but must take on specific values.

URL should be This is a very impressive applet, which demonstrates P, Q, and R branches of diatomic molecule spectra in a way that would be helpful to anyone teaching the subject.
