Heya…For the past couple of weeks I have been doing simulations for quantum systems, like the harmonic oscillator(mainly) and square well..as a part of the course..We produced some really nice graphics (using python) for multiple harmonic wells.
In this post I will be sharing some of the simulations..It can give a good insight to the physics of quantum mechanics.
|Plots of wavefunctions for multiple harmonic wells|
Some useful points to be noted
- The degeneracy in each levels increase as the number of wells is increased.(remember the lattice structure?)
- For large number of wells, it begins to show band structure.
- The separation between the wells determine the magnitude of their interaction
