    1. Chapter 27 Quantum Physics

    2. Need for Quantum Physics • Problems remained that classical mechanics couldn’t explain: • Blackbody radiation – electromagnetic radiation emitted by a heated object • Photoelectric effect – emission of electrons by an illuminated metal • Spectral lines – emission of sharp spectral lines by gas atoms in an electric discharge tube

    3. Josef Stefan 1835–1893 Blackbody Radiation • An object at any temperature emits electromagnetic radiation, sometimes called thermal radiation • Stefan’s Law describes the total power radiated • The spectrum of the radiation depends on the temperature and properties of the object • As the temperature increases, the total amount of energy increases and the peak of the distribution shifts to shorter wavelengths

    4. Wilhelm Carl Werner Otto Fritz Franz Wien 1864 – 1928 Wien’s Displacement Law • The wavelength of the peak of the blackbody distribution was found to follow Wein’s displacement law λmax T = 0.2898 x 10-2 m • K • λmax – wavelength at which the curve’s peak • T – absolute temperature of the object emitting the radiation

    5. The Ultraviolet Catastrophe • Classical theory did not match the experimental data • At long wavelengths, the match is good • At short wavelengths, classical theory predicted infinite energy • At short wavelengths, experiment showed no or little energy • This contradiction is called the ultraviolet catastrophe

    6. Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck 1858 – 1947 Planck’s Resolution • Planck hypothesized that the blackbody radiation was produced by resonators, submicroscopic charged oscillators • The resonators could only have discrete energies En = n h ƒ • n – quantum number, ƒ – frequency of vibration, h –Planck’s constant, 6.626 x 10-34 J s • Key point is quantized energy states

    7. Albert Einstein 1879 – 1955 Photoelectric Effect • Photoelectric effect (first discovered by Hertz): when light is incident on certain metallic surfaces, electrons are emitted from the surface –photoelectrons • The successful explanation of the effect was given by Einstein • Electrons collected at C (maintained at a positive potential) and passing through the ammeter are a current in the circuit

    8. Photoelectric Effect • The current increases with intensity, but reaches a saturation level for large DV’s • No current flows for voltages less than or equal to –DVs, the stopping potential, independent of the radiation intensity • The maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons is related to the stopping potential: KEmax = e DVs

    9. Features Not Explained by Classical Physics • No electrons are emitted if the incident light frequency is below some cutoff frequency that is characteristic of the material being illuminated • The maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons is independentof the light intensity • The maximum kinetic energy of the photoelectrons increases with increasing light frequency • Electrons are emitted from the surface almost instantaneously, even at low intensities

    10. KEmax = hƒ – f Einstein’s Explanation • Einstein extended Planck’s idea of quantization to electromagnetic radiation • A tiny packet of light energy – a photon – is emitted when a quantized oscillator jumps from one energy level to the next lower one • The photon’s energy is E = hƒ • Each photon can give all its energy to an electron in the metal • The maximum kinetic energy of the liberated photoelectron is KEmax = hƒ – f • fis called the work function of the metal

    11. KEmax = hƒ – f Einstein’s Explanation • The effect is not observed below a certain cutoff frequency since the photon energy must be greater than or equal to the work function • Without this, electrons are not emitted, regardless of the intensity of the light • The maximum KE depends only on the frequency and the work function, not on the intensity • The maximum KE increases with increasing frequency • The effect is instantaneous since there is a one-to-one interaction between the photon and the electron

    12. KEmax = hƒ – f Verification of Einstein’s Theory • Experimental observations of a linear relationship between KE and frequency confirm Einstein’s theory • The x-intercept is the cutoff frequency • The cutoff wavelength is related to the work function • Wavelengths greater than lC incident on a material with a work function fdon’t result in the emission of photoelectrons c = λƒ

    13. Chapter 27Problem 16 An isolated copper sphere of radius 5.00 cm, initially uncharged, is illuminated by ultraviolet light of wavelength 200 nm. What charge will the photoelectric effect induce on the sphere? The work function for copper is 4.70 eV.

    14. Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen 1845 – 1923 X-Rays • X-rays (discovered and named by Roentgen): electromagnetic radiation with short – typically about 0.1 nm – wavelengths • X-rays have the ability to penetrate most materials with relative ease • X-rays are produced when high-speed electrons are suddenly slowed down

    15. Production of X-rays • X-rays can be produced by electrons striking a metal target • A current in the filament causes electrons to be emitted • These freed electrons are accelerated toward a dense metal target (the target is held at a higher potential than the filament)

    16. X-ray Spectrum • The x-ray spectrum has two distinct components • 1) Bremsstrahlung: a continuous broad spectrum, which depends on voltage applied to the tube • 2) The sharp, intense lines, which depend on the nature of the target material

    17. Bremsstrahlung • An electron passes near a target nucleus and is deflected from its path by its attraction to the nucleus • This produces an acceleration of the electron and hence emission of electromagnetic radiation • If the electron loses all of its energy in the collision, the initial energy of the electron is completely transformed into a photon • The wavelength then is

    18. Bremsstrahlung • Not all radiation produced is at this wavelength • Many electrons undergo more than one collision before being stopped • This results in the continuous spectrum produced

    19. Diffraction of X-rays by Crystals • For diffraction to occur, the spacing between the lines must be approximately equal to the wavelength of the radiation to be measured • The regular array of atoms in a crystal can act as a three-dimensional grating for diffracting X-rays

    20. Diffraction of X-rays by Crystals • A beam of X-rays is incident on the crystal • The diffracted radiation is very intense in the directions that correspond to constructive interference from waves reflected from the layers of the crystal

    21. Max Theodore Felix von Laue 1879 – 1960 Diffraction of X-rays by Crystals • The diffraction pattern is detected by photographic film • The array of spots is called a Laue pattern • The crystal structure is determined by analyzing the positions and intensities of the various spots

    22. Sir William Lawrence Bragg 1890 – 1971 Bragg’s Law • The beam reflected from the lower surface travels farther than the one reflected from the upper surface • If the path difference equals some integral multiple of the wavelength, constructive interference occurs • Bragg’s Law gives the conditions for constructive interference 2 d sin θ = m λ m = 1, 2, 3…

    23. Arthur Holly Compton 1892 – 1962 The Compton Effect • Compton directed a beam of x-rays toward a block of graphite and found that the scattered x-rays had a slightly longer wavelength (lower energy) that the incident x-rays • The change in wavelength (energy) – the Compton shift – depends on the angle at which the x-rays are scattered

    24. Arthur Holly Compton 1892 – 1962 The Compton Effect • Compton assumed the photons acted like other particles in collisions with electrons • Energy and momentum were conserved • The shift in wavelength is given by

    25. Arthur Holly Compton 1892 – 1962 The Compton Effect • The Compton shiftdepends on the scattering angle and not on the wavelength • h/mec = 0.002 43 nm (very small compared to visible light) is called the Compton wavelength

    26. Chapter 27Problem 33 A 0.45-nm x-ray photon is deflected through a 23° angle after scattering from a free electron. (a) What is the kinetic energy of the recoiling electron? (b) What is its speed?

    27. Photons and Electromagnetic Waves • Light (as well as all other electromagnetic radiation) has a dual nature. It exhibits both wave and particle characteristics • The photoelectric effect and Compton scattering offer evidence for the particle nature of light – when light and matter interact, light behaves as if it were composed of particles • On the other hand, interference and diffraction offer evidence of the wave nature of light

    28. Louis de Broglie 1892 – 1987 Wave Properties of Particles • In 1924, Louis de Broglie postulated that because photons have wave and particle characteristics, perhaps all forms of matter have both properties • Furthermore, the frequency and wavelength of matter waves can be determined • The de Broglie wavelength of a particle is • The frequency of matter waves is

    29. Louis de Broglie 1892 – 1987 Wave Properties of Particles • The de Broglie equations show the dual nature of matter • Each contains matter concepts (energy and momentum) and wave concepts (wavelength and frequency) • The de Broglie wavelength of a particle is • The frequency of matter waves is

    30. Clinton Joseph Davisson (1881 – 1958) and Lester Halbert Germer (1896 – 1971) The Davisson-Germer Experiment • Davisson and Germer scattered low-energy electrons from a nickel target and followed this with extensive diffraction measurements from various materials • The wavelength of the electrons calculated from the diffraction data agreed with the expected de Broglie wavelength • This confirmed the wave nature of electrons • Other experimenters confirmed the wave nature of other particles

    31. Chapter 27Problem 40 A monoenergetic beam of electrons is incident on a single slit of width 0.500 nm. A diffraction pattern is formed on a screen 20.0 cm from the slit. If the distance between successive minima of the diffraction pattern is 2.10 cm, what is the energy of the incident electrons?

    32. Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger 1892 – 1987 The Wave Function • In 1926 Schrödinger proposed a wave equation that describes the manner in which matter waves change in space and time • Schrödinger’s wave equation is a key element in quantum mechanics • Schrödinger’s wave equation is generally solved for the wave function, Ψ, which depends on the particle’s position and the time • The value of Ψ2 at some location at a given time is proportional to the probability of finding the particle at that location at that time

    33. The Uncertainty Principle • When measurements are made, the experimenter is always faced with experimental uncertainties in the measurements • Classical mechanics offers no fundamental barrier to ultimate refinements in measurements and would allow for measurements with arbitrarily small uncertainties • Quantum mechanics predicts that a barrier to measurements with ultimately small uncertainties does exist

    34. Werner Karl Heisenberg 1901 – 1976 The Uncertainty Principle • In 1927 Heisenberg introduced the uncertainty principle:If a measurement of position of a particle is made with precision Δx and a simultaneous measurement of linear momentum is made with precision Δpx, then the product of the two uncertainties can never be smaller than h/4 • Mathematically, • It is physically impossible to measure simultaneously the exact position and the exact linear momentum of a particle

    35. Werner Karl Heisenberg 1901 – 1976 The Uncertainty Principle • Another form of the principle deals with energy and time: • Energy of a particle can not be measured with complete precision in a short interval of time Dt

    36. The Uncertainty Principle • A thought experiment for viewing an electron with a powerful microscope • In order to see the electron, at least one photon must bounce off it • During this interaction, momentum is transferred from the photon to the electron • Therefore, the light that allows you to accurately locate the electron changes the momentum of the electron

    37. The Uncertainty Principle

    38. Chapter 27Problem 46 (a) Show that the kinetic energy of a nonrelativistic particle can be written in terms of its momentum as KE = p2/2m. (b) Use the results of (a) to find the minimum kinetic energy of a proton confined within a nucleus having a diameter of 1.0 × 10−15 m.
