Solution of the Schrödinger Equation for the Hydrogen Atom
Model ID: 113
This example shows how to compute energy levels and electron orbits for the hydrogen atom. It models the atom as a 1-particle system using the stationary Schrödinger equation. Before solving this problem in COMSOL Multiphysics, the dimension of the problem is firstly reduced from three to two by using cylindrical coordinates (rho, phi, z). The model is then set up using the PDE Coefficient axisymmetry interface.
