Quantum harmonic oscillator

Quantum harmonic oscillator

Quantum harmonic oscillator is an important case study for learning quantum mechanics. This activity consists of a sequence of quantum dynamic simulations that introduce a number of important concepts, including classic correspondence, coherent and squeezed states, quantum transitions, and quantum dissipation. These concepts are very important in quantum computing and quantum communication--the new science and engineering that are based on quantum mechanics.
