The Quantum Vibes of Atoms and Ichthyosaurs

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskrift/Konferencebidrag i tidsskrift /Bidrag til avisTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

The quantum mechanical description of microscopic phenomena treats minusculeparticles as waves and explains why atoms and molecules absorb and emitradiation at particular frequencies. This article reviews the physicaltheory of waves and discusses similarities between atoms and musicalinstruments. In particular, it describes how we may identify new musicalscales and harmonies and play atomic music by translating and scaling thefrequencies in the atomic world to the audible spectrum.
