New in this version:
"Color Scheme" changed to
"Wave Function Display"
<>Bugfix: switching Wave Function Display while paused now
automatically updates graphics.
Delete the "edit" button on the barrier (very confusing and probably
very useful to the general user.)
Pressing the grayed out button no longer does anything.>
- Add Mandel Experiment
- Add incoherent mode?
- When a new electron or atom appears, it
appears *above* the gun, so it is not clear that it is coming out of
the gun. It should start lower, or probably easier, the gun
should be moved up.
-I expect student interviews will
show no problems with this.
- New Particles
- Maybe Helium
- Proper units
- Add a
“classical mode” in which small wavepackets are treated & displayed
as classical particles? This feature is
- How to handle
easier with photons?
Tried scrambling the
phases, weird artifacts in wave propagation
Also, still get
coherence in parts.
controlled decoherence? (last priority)
- Screen controls should be in a panel
- This is difficult due to problems in
- Gun should do
something graphical (oscillate, glow?) on rapid fire
- Ruler with
- Add 3d edges
to wave area, detector sheet and (possibly) potential barriers &
wavelength and intensity controls should be moved further to the right
on the "2 lasers" panel so they don't cover up the guns.
- When gun type
is set to "atoms" the velocity control is still partially off-screen.
It's still useable, but not very pretty.
- User should be able to click and
drag the red thing with the slits in it. Shouldn't be able to
move the position or size of the slits within the barrier, but can move
the whole things around.
- "Slit separation" is normally taken
to be the distance between the centers of the slits. Therefore,
for the separation to remain the same while the width changes, the
width needs to change from both sides of the slit, not just the outside.
- Internal code for photon particle
emission is quite ugly.
- Internal code for Big Red Button is
- Making slits visible/invisible
destroys saved state of in-slit detectors in intensity mode.
- Dragging slits while classical
propagator is running causes errors in the norm. (Wavefunction grows
