Unit X: Introduction to Quantum & Spectroscopy

  • Page ID
  • Quantum mechanics is a fundamental branch of physics concerned with processes involving small particles (e.g, atoms and photons). Such processes as said to be quantized with properties that are observed in only in integer multiples of the Planck constant. This is utterly inexplicable in classical physics which is a continuum approach.
