written by Paul Falstad
This simulation explores the transitions between quantum states in a number of 1D systems.  The time-dependent wavefunction is displayed.  An electric field resonant with the transition between states is applied and the changes in the wavefunction with time are tracked.  The dipole transition probability is displayed for different initial to final state transitions, and the user may select the transition they wish to observe.
