8.04 Quantum Physics I
8.04 Quantum Physics I (Spring 2013, MIT OCW). Instructors: Prof. Allan Adams, Prof. Matthew Evans and Prof. Barton Zwiebach. This course covers the experimental basis of
quantum physics. Topics include: photoelectric effect, Compton scattering, photons, Franck-Hertz experiment, the Bohr atom, electron diffraction, de Broglie waves, and the wave-particle
duality of matter and light. Introduction to wave mechanics: Schrodinger's equation, wave functions, wave packets, probability amplitudes, stationary states, the Heisenberg uncertainty principle,
and zero-point energies. Solutions to Schrodinger's equation in one dimension: transmission and reflection at a barrier, barrier penetration, potential wells, the simple harmonic oscillator.
Schrodinger's equation in three dimensions: central potentials and introduction to hydrogenic systems.
