Quantum Mechanics Visualizations

A series of visualizations and games to highlight topics in quantum mechanics that correlate to semiconductor physics.

Goals

The abstract nature of QM makes it something hard to visualize even for experts in the field. My goal is to research and understand the areas that students are having trouble understanding QM, and build a series of visualizations and games that can help explain these topics in a simple, visual manner.

Particle-in-a-Box game

The second visualization we are working on concurrently with the first is a game to showcase some of the properties of an electron in  a one-dimensional scenario.
