Example text

Beginning at a colatitude of 20◦ , a series of such observations is made, over a predetermined voltage range, at 5◦ intervals to colatitude 80◦ or 85◦ . To figure out how the electron wavelength is measured in the Davisson– Germer experiment, let us consider, for simplicity, a one-dimensional model, where the incoming wave is diffracted from each atom (of the crystal), represented by a point on a line. Constructive or destructive interference may occur for the waves diffracted from the atoms. On denoting the separation between adjacent atoms by d, the angle formed by the directions of the incoming and reflected beams by θ and with n an integer ≥ 1, the condition for constructive interference is d sin θ = nλ.

I) An atom can only have a discrete set of energies starting from a minimal energy: E1 < E2 < · · · < En < · · ·. e. states that correspond to bounded classical orbits in phase space. The minimal energy state of an atomic system is called the ground state. (II) When an atomic system is in one of the above discrete energy levels it does not radiate. The emission (respectively, absorption) of radiation is associated with the transition of the electron from one orbit to another of lower (respectively, higher) energy.

1 Time-dependent Hamiltonian formalism In a time-dependent formalism, the configuration space Q is replaced by a factorizable ‘extended configuration space’ Q ≡ Q×R. As long as we do not use this factorizability property, whatever we have said in the general case also holds in this ‘extended setting’. It should be mentioned that in a non-relativistic framework one usually considers a given factorization and this is called an Aristotelian setting. When the projection Q → R is preserved but no specific factorization is considered, one is in a Galilean setting; if no factorization is used but Q is endowed with a Lorentzian metric, one is dealing with an Einstein setting.
