JCNS-videos demonstrate quantum mechanics and neutron scattering


Quantum mechanics is one of the central pillars of modern physics. This mathematically complex theory which allows the properties and laws of matter to be described is, however, rather to understand intuitively. The videos clarify fundamental aspects of quantum mechanics using neutron scattering experiments from research undertaken at the Jülich institute. The videos are around 5 and 4 minutes in length respectively, and are appropriate for use in an introductory lecture course in quantum mechanics or for self-study purposes. Video 1 looks at the topics of quantization, quantum phase transitions and scattering at lattices; Video 2 deals in more detail with quantum phase transitions. [more] [archive]
