PHYS 402 Spring 2015 Applications of Quantum Mechanics (Q)

This course will explore a number of important topics in the application of quantum mechanics to physical systems, including perturbation theory, the variational principle and the semiclassical interaction of atoms and radiation. The course will finish up with three weeks on quantum optics including an experimental project on non-classical interference phenomena. Applications and examples will be taken mostly from atomic physics with some discussion of solid state systems.
Class Format: tutorial, 1 and 1/4 hours per week; lecture, one hour per week
Requirements/Evaluation: evaluation will be based on weekly problem sets, tutorial participation, presentations, and a final exam, all of which have a substantial quantitative component
