Visualizing Quantum Mechanical Phenomena

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:0297-zib-4287
  • In this paper we discuss several ways to visualize stationary and non-stationary quantum mechanical systems. We demonstrate an approach for the quantitative interpretation of probability density isovalues which yields a reasonable correlation between isosurfaces for different timesteps. As an intuitive quantity for visualizing the momentum of a quantum system we propose the probability flow density which can be treated by vector field visualization techniques. Finally, we discuss the visualization of non-stationary systems by a sequence of single timestep images.
