KurzbeschreibungThe goal of the Physics II class is an introduction to quantum mechanics
LernzielTo work effectively in many areas of modern engineering, such as renewable energy and nanotechnology, students must possess a basic understanding of quantum mechanics. The aim of this course is to provide this knowledge while making connections to applications of relevancy to engineers. After completing this course, students will understand the basic postulates of quantum mechanics and be able to apply mathematical methods for solving various problems including atoms, molecules, and solids. Additional examples from engineering disciplines will also be integrated.
InhaltContent:
- The Photon of Planck and Einstein
- Wave mechanics: the old quantum theory
- Postulates and formalism of Quantum Mechanics
- First application: the quantum well and the harmonic Oscillator
- QM in three dimension: the Hydrogen atom
- Identical particles: Pauli's principle
- Crystalline Systems and band structures
- Quantum statistics
- Approximation Methods
- Applications in Engineering
- Entanglement and superposition
SkriptLecture notes (Some in as a Latex script and some hand-written) will be distributed via the Moodle interface
