Quantum Mechanics on Diatomic Molecule: Info Sources

In summary, quantum mechanics is a branch of physics that studies the behavior of particles at the atomic and subatomic level, including principles such as superposition, entanglement, and uncertainty. A diatomic molecule is a molecule composed of two atoms, and quantum mechanics is essential for understanding its behavior and properties. Reliable sources for information on these subjects include scientific journals, textbooks, and reputable websites. Studying quantum mechanics on diatomic molecules can have practical applications in fields such as materials science, chemistry, technology, and contribute to advancements in quantum computing and communication.

Does anyone know where I can find information about using quantum mechanics on the diatomic molecule (E.g. Lectures on YouTube or just notes)?

Thanks.

Kind of a hard question to answer, since it's typically general-QM books, and books on atomic/molecular stuff in general.

But I do know Landau-Lifgarbagez's QM book (chapter XI) does do a pretty thorough investigation into most aspects of diatomics (pretty much as far as you can go analytically).

Anything specific you're after?

There are many reputable sources for information on using quantum mechanics to study diatomic molecules. Some popular options include textbooks, scientific journals, and online courses. Here are a few specific suggestions:

1. "Quantum Mechanics for Chemists" by David O. Hayward: This textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to quantum mechanics specifically for chemists. It includes a chapter on the application of quantum mechanics to diatomic molecules.

2. "Introduction to Quantum Mechanics" by David J. Griffiths: Another popular textbook, this one covers the basics of quantum mechanics and includes a chapter on molecular structure and spectroscopy.

3. "The Journal of Chemical Physics": This scientific journal regularly publishes research articles on the application of quantum mechanics to molecular systems. You can search for specific topics, such as diatomic molecules, on their website.

4. "Quantum Mechanics for Everyone" by Mark Beck: This online course, available on Coursera, provides a gentle introduction to quantum mechanics and includes a module on molecular structure and bonding.

In addition to these sources, there are also many lectures and notes available on YouTube and other online platforms from universities and individual researchers. However, it is important to carefully evaluate the credibility and accuracy of these sources before using them for research purposes.
