Explore tunneling splitting in double well potentials. This classic problem describes many physical systems, including covalent bonds, Josephson junctions, and two-state systems such as spin 1/2 particles and ammonia molecules.

The Spins package is a self-contained file for the teaching of measurement and time evolution of spin-1/2 systems in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material focuses on single and multiple measurements of different ensembles of identically prepared spin-1/2 particles. The Spins package is an Open Source Physics curricular package written for the teaching of quantum mechanics. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the osp_spins.jar file will run the package if Java is installed. The original program, Spins, was written for the Macintosh by Daniel Schroeder and Thomas Moore and was then ported to Java by David McIntyre. We have made extensive modifications to the Java version of the SPINS program. Other quantum mechanics packages are also available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Quantum Mechanics.
