Visualizing continuum wavefunctions

Visualizing continuum wavefunctions

A snippet from today – playing around with continuum wavefunctions for photoionization & electron scattering.  The image shows electron wavefunctions for scattering from CO at a few different electron energies (10, 12 and 14 eV).

A beautiful bit of quantum mechanics!

And hats off to R. Luchesse (Texas A&M) for distributing ePolyScat, which was used for the underlying computation.
