Click the upper left corner to choose a state
The animation shows the quantum noise (left) and the corresponding moving wave packet (right) in the potential of the quantum harmonic oscillator.
The unit of the quantum noise amplitude is the same as the one of the wave packets x-axis: 1 unit corresponds to the quantum noise of the vacuum state.
All the states are online calculations, depending on the parameter input you choose.
Altogether you can generate so far:
Coherent States
Squeezed States
Coherent Superpositions of two Coherent States (Schrödinger Cat States)
Number States
Coherent Superpositions of a Number State with a Coherent State (Schrödinger Cat States)
to be continued...
START - starts the animation
WIGNER - shows the corresponding phase space distribution function, so far only in xy-data
PHOTON - shows the corresponding photon statistics
