Aims
  • Can explain, from historical point of view, the evolvement of Quantum Mechanics and give examples of applications of QM in modern Science & Technology.
  • Can explain the Copenhagen interpretation of QM and use the Schrodinger equation to solve simple problems.
Content
The basic elements of quantum mechanics will be introduced using a series of examples from modern physics. The following topics will be addressed: duality of particles, diffraction, photo-electric effect, uncertainty relation of Heisenberg, Schrödinger equation, quantum mechanical particle in a box, atoms and molecules, free electron model, band theory of solids, semiconductors and superconductors.
