Visualize Atom Orbitals in RealTime  
This software visualizes electrons in atoms. The socalled "orbitals" are 3dimensional waves.  Waves ? Yes, your teacher in school was definitely wrong when he said the electron was moving on a circle around the core. You've probably heard that light can be a wave or a particle. Electrons behave quite similarly. Quantum Mecanics is the theory which describes this wavephenomena. Because the math behind the calculation of these orbital waves is tough, we need the computer to visualize this beautiful objects.

Orbitals for Macintosh (PPC): orbitals.sit (only 120kb, Encoding with StuffItExpander) There is a small pdffile about Orbitals and the math behind it.


Why Orbitals ?  
Orbitals is completely realtime and interactive. It runs at 35 frames per second even on a standard iMac, and provides high graphics quality. Users can directly interact with the object they are watching. This means realtime mouserotating, changing quantum numbers, zoom and more. With all this features, Orbitals is still very easy to use.
