FYS-2000 Quantum mechanics - 10 ECTS
Knowledge: The student is able to
- describe the strength and limitations of Bohr's atomic model;
- describe the Schrödinger equation, wave functions and their physical interpretation;
- describe stationary and non-stationary states, as well as expectation values;
- describe the concepts of spin and angular momentum in quantum physics.
Skills: The student is able to
- use the Schrödinger equation to describe simple one-dimensional systems
- use the solution to compute probabilities, expectation values, uncertainties and time evolution of the systems
- explain the structure of the periodic system of the elements
General expertise: The student is able to
- understand the role of measurements in quantum systems
- the wave-particle duality of photons
- the role of quantum effects to explain physical phenomena of modern physics
