MACROSCOPIC SYSTEMS 6.28 Thermoelectric Applications 6.28.1 Peltier effect 6.28.2 Seebeck effect 6.28.3 Thomson effect Chapter 7 Time Evolution 7.1 The Schrodinger Equation 7.1.1 The equation 7.1.2 Solution of the equation 7.1.2.1 Solution schrodsol-a Question: The energy of a photon is h where is the classical frequency of the electro- magnetic field produced by the photon. So what is e i E vectorn t/ h for a photon? Are you surprised by the result? Answer: The exponential e i E vectorn t/ h becomes e i t . That is the classical time dependence of the electromagnetic field. The result is not really surprising, because of the wave-particle dualism of quantum mechanics. 89 90 CHAPTER 7. TIME EVOLUTION Classical physics understands the wave nature of light well, and not its particle nature. This is the opposite of the situation for an electron, where classical physics understands the particle nature, and not the wave nature....
