Modern Physics - Intro
Quantum mechanics (QM) is a branch of physics providing a mathematical description of much of the dual particle-like and wave-like behavior and interactions of energy and matter. It departs from classical mechanics primarily at the atomic and subatomic levels due to the probabilistic nature of quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics provides a radically different view of the atom, which is no longer seen as a tiny billiard ball but rather as a small, dense nucleus surrounded by a cloud of electrons which can only be described by a probability function. The counterintuitive properties of quantum mechanics (such as superposition and entanglement) arise from the fact that subatomic particles are treated as quantum objects.

Photoelectric Effect - Overview
In physics, the photoelectric effect is the emission of electrons or other free carriers when light is shone onto a material. Electrons emitted in this manner can be called photoelectrons. The phenomenon is commonly studied in electronic physics, as well as in fields of chemistry, such as quantum chemistry or electrochemistry.

Wave or Particle - Overview
In physics, a wave is a disturbance that transfers energy through space and matter. A wave consists of oscillations or vibrations that travel through a medium. The energy of a wave is determined by the medium, the frequency of the wave, and the amplitude of the wave.

Wave or particle - Example 3
In quantum mechanics, a waveâ€“particle duality is a concept concerning the indistinguishability of certain fundamentally different kinds of systems, one exhibiting wave-like properties, the other particle-like properties. A central question in quantum mechanics concerns the relationship between these two kinds of behavior. A waveâ€“particle duality is a system which exhibits both wave-like and particle-like properties. This concept arises frequently in quantum mechanics, especially in discussions of quantum entanglement and the EPR paradox.

Waves and Uncertainty - Overview
Quantum physics (or quantum mechanics) is a branch of physics which deals with physical phenomena where the action is on the order of the Planck constant. Quantum mechanics applies to a limited range of phenomena, including all matter with a positive integer spin, and many properties of atoms, molecules, solids, and subatomic particles. Some of these applications are readily understandable to the layperson, like the conductivity of semiconductors and the emission of light from atoms. Others, such as quantum computing and the uncertainty principle are less intuitive.

Schrodinger Equation - Overview
In quantum mechanics, the Schrodinger equation is a mathematical equation that describes the change in quantum states of a physical system in terms of its quantum wave function. The wave function contains information about the probability amplitude of position, momentum, and other physical properties of a particle. The SchrÃ¶dinger equation determines how the wave function changes with timeâ€”it expresses the quantum dynamics of a system. It was formulated in late 1925, and published in 1926, by the Austrian physicist Erwin SchrÃ¶dinger.

Tunneling - Overview
Tunneling is the quantum mechanical phenomenon where a particle moves through a potential barrier that it classically could not surmount. A classic example of tunneling is the passage of a classical electron through the potential barrier formed by the edges of a square potential well. Quantum mechanically, tunneling can be understood using the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and the waveâ€“particle duality of matter. Tunneling is commonly observed in atomic, molecular, and solid-state systems. Tunneling is of particular importance in the field of quantum computing, and is the mechanism responsible for the quantum tunnelling effect, a process by which a particle tunnels through a barrier that it classically would not be able to surmount.
