Quantum Motion,used in Waves of Matter Unit 10, is no longer available.  A suitable substitute is for a simple wave packet spreading is Time Development of a Wave Packet (QuVIS).  To have students set up other situations involving time evolution of wave packets we recommend  Quantum Tunneling and Wave Packets (PhET)   

 Additional programs (Windows only)

 Franck-Hertz Experiment

 Hydrogen Spectroscopy

 Zeeman Effect Experiment

 Semiconductor Device Simulator

Two error messages will appear when the program starts. Click OK for each and the program seems to run fine.
