This course will bring students to retrace the thinking paths of physicists in the early 20th century to unravel the mysteries of atoms. The course includes lectures, experiments, and a visit. Students will glimpse through the basic concepts of quantum physics, such as wave particle duality, quantization, wave function and its probabilistic interpretation, spin, and their applications to understand some atomic and nuclear phenomena, including energy levels in atoms, atomic spectra, formation of molecules, as well as a more advanced topic on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which is now widely applied to medical imaging.
Students will gain hands-on experience in using modern laboratory equipments to measure atomic spectra, and determine the charge mass ratio of electron. A visit to a company in Hong Kong Science and Technology Park will also be included to let students see the operation of a medical MRI machine.
