PHYS 124: Atomic Structure Minicourse

[2.0 units]

This half-semester minicourse develops the quantum theory of atomic structure, focusing on the hydrogen atom. It builds on PHYS 137  and gives students a chance to see quantum mechanics “in action”. Material covered includes: angular momentum and spin, spherical harmonics, hydrogen eigenstates, spin-orbit coupling, radiative transitions, and the Stark effect.

Prerequisite: PHYS 137 . Discussion included.
