When we are measuring the spin of the electron in the experiment, we choose the spin property as its eigen state for the measurement. The eigen vectors corresponding to these states could be time dependent. Can we still break the problem into solving time independent Schrodinger Equation and then multiplying by a time dependent function, like we do for the case of measurement of energy? How do we calculate the spin eigen vectors using Schrodinger Equation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
