The radiation of an atom was interpreted by time-independent schrodinger equation:electron was transformed from high energy level state to lower and emit a photon.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could we treat this process through a wavefunction ##{\psi}(t)##? Before emiting,the system's wavefunction is ##{\psi}(0)## and after emiting photon,it is ##{\psi}(t_0)##.

##{\psi}(t)## is constrained by time-dependent schrodinger equation and contain all information of the system.

Is there any papers incorporate photon emiting in wavefunction as well as the method to define ##{\psi}(t=0)##?
