Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments

Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments

The Spin-1 particles in successive Stern-Gerlach experiments simulation aims to help students make connections between the vector representation of quantum states for a spin-1 particle and the physical measurement outcomes. The simulation allows students to choose up to two successive Stern-Gerlach apparatuses (SGAs), and change the orientation of the second SGA. The simulation shows the quantum states, the matrix representations of the...
