Having there carried out a theoretical piece, of work on the absorption of alpha rays which was published in the
Philosophical Magazine, 1913, you passed on to a study of the structure of atoms on the basis of Rutherford's
discovery of the atomic nucleus. By introducing conceptions borrowed from the Quantum Theory as
established by Planck, which had gradually come to occupy a prominent position in the science of theoretical
physics, you succeeded in working out and presenting a picture of atomic structure that, with later
improvements (mainly as a result of Heisenberg's ideas in 1925), stillﬁtly serves as an elucidation of the
physical and chemical properties of the elements. V You started with the simplest atom, Hlike atom (i.e., one electron circulating around a nucleus carrying +Z
charge). Based on your training in classical mechanics, you realized that the Coulomb force of attraction on the
electron, Foam, provides the acceleration a towards the nucleus:

observation, you propose the 2”"l Bohr condition, quantizatio of angular momentum: I

“quantummirage” (Fig. 2). It is ﬁrst predicted based on the Schrodinger equationinqthgwﬁﬁxulsohn's
interpretation that. if one puts an atom (say. an Fe atom) at one focus of the “quantum mirage". then there is
probability that one can observe this atom appearing at the other focus. This prediction was later conﬁrmed
experimentally by Dr. Donald M. Eigler in the IBM Almaden Research Center (published in Nature. 403. 489,
Feb. 03. 2000) and was ﬁnally transformed into the 1st Stargate device by someone in our ChemZOA—1 Fall
2006 class. The ﬁgure below shows the propogation of the sound wave in. say. the Disney Hall in downtown LA, when the
orchestra. the singer. or the band is located at one focus. Please use this ﬁgure to explain the working principle
of the "quantum mirage" within one page. (Hint: 2 steps in solving a quantum chemistry problem: i) how is the
time evolution and spatial distribution of the wavefunction ?; ii) based on Born‘s interpretation. what is the
physical meaning of the wavefunction from (i) ?)
