Atom Dipole Transistions Applet

Atom Dipole Transistions Applet

This quantum mechanics simulation shows electric dipole transitions, interactions of classical electromagnetic radiation, in an atom. It demonstrates absorption and stimulated emission. A wide range of transitions are shown, including the time-dependent states, the electric field, and the amplitudes and phases of each basis state.
