Course Outcomes

Quantum systems

Apply techniques such as time-independent perturbation theory, variational methods, time-dependent perturbation theory, and scattering theory to quantum systems.

Level Splitting

Describe and quantify fine, hyperfine, and Zeeman level splittings in atoms.

Emission and Absorption

Characterize emission and absorption of radiation by atoms, and derive the associated selection rules.

Scattering and Tunneling
