The Phase Matters package is a self-contained file for the teaching of phase and time evolution in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material focuses on when and how, for arbitrary quantum-mechanical states, the phase of the wave function matters.
The Phase Matters package is an Open Source Physics curricular package written for the teaching of quantum mechanics. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the osp_phase_matters.jar file will run the package if Java is installed. Other quantum mechanics packages are also available. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Quantum Mechanics.
