Simulations of Quantum Mechanics starts as a collaborative project involving undergraduate students, professors and researchers. It is based on the development of computer programs, created by students under the supervision of professors, which allow to introduce basic concepts of quantum mechanics and the physics of ultracold gases to the students of baccalaureate and degree. The programs carried out aim to be rigorous from the scientific point of view, solving the relevant equations in a precise manner, combined with a graphical interface that allows users to interact with them in a pleasant way.

OBJECTIVES:
Encourage cooperation among seniors of degree  
Bring seniors in the research that takes place in our department
Produce a useful tool for the dissemination of science at the high school level

QuantumUBLabThis project develops programs specifically designed to bring quantum physics phenomena to a heterogeneous audience. In recent years Quantum Technologies research is receiving a strong global push. These technologies will allow in a near future to use aspects of quantum mechanics to improve our computing capacity, to solve complex problems or even to improve our communications. The material developed in this project aims to bring this quantum physics to the citizen.

So far we have developed two simulations. One deals with the problem of the double slit in a two-dimensional space and the other opposes the classical movement of a rolling ball with that of a quantum particle in a similar potential. These two programs allow us to explain concepts such as the wave-particle duality, the tunnel effect, and to discuss the probabilistic nature of the measurement.

 


This project started in February 2018

QuantumUBLabThe main goal of this project is to build interactive codes to play with quasionedimensional Bose-Einstein condensates by pinning dark and bright solitons.

- Module of quantum mechanics. To exemplify some aspects of quantum mechanics
- Bright solitons module. Allows the user to play with bright solits contracted in a condensation Bose-Einstein 1D
- Dark solitons module. It allows the user to play with a dark solitons contracted in a condensation Bose-Einstein 1D
