A page to develop and share experimental and modeling tools. Here is an example of a Mathematica file for solving and modeling an infinite square well and modeling a simple harmonic oscillator: Quantum Wells.
Student projects may include:
- Modeling the diffraction patterns of living systems.
- Modeling artistic systems.
- Modeling TEM modes.
Check out the Quantum Buzz for conceptual guidance.
A possibility is to use a glass lens to create this effect. Glass lenses have a front active surface and a back active surface. Further the optical properties in these surfaces are not spatially uniform. A cylinder symmetrical lens suffers from Seidel aberrations and chromatic aberrations. This Fourier transform characterises the optical properties of the lens. It is called the Optical Transfer Function (OTF).
