PHYS 124: Atomic Structure Minicourse
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.
