•Course Purpose
Microscopic phenomena on an atomic scale cannot be understood in the framework of classical physics. History on development of quantum physics is presented.

Goal of study:
1. Understanding of physical logic that derives laws from experimental facts.
2. Understanding of cavity radiation on the basis of the concept of quantum physics.
3. Understanding of atomic structure and optical spectra.
Through the above learning, basic skills to learn the modern quantum physics is acquired.

•Prerequisite Subjects
Mechanics, Electromagnetics, Mathematics, Chemistry

•Course Topics
1. Introduction to atomic physics
2. Cavity radiation
3. Particle behavior of light, Photoelectric effects and Compton scattering
4. Wave behavior of particles, de Broglie wave
5. Superposition of wave and uncertainty principle
6. Bohr's theory of atomic model and atomic spectra
7. Schrödinger equation and wave function

Will be introduced in the class.
