Schrodinger wave equation. In 1926, Austrian physicist Erwin Schrodinger (1887-1961) published his work that described how the behaviour of atomic particles were wave-like in nature. Planck's constant divided by 2pi, the fractional symbols represent the partial derivative with respect to time, the psi symbol is the wave function of a quantum system and H is the Hamilton operator. Schrondinger's equation helped understand how matter behaves at the atomic and subatomic levels - a field known as quantum mechanics. Quantum mechanics operate in many fields of modern technology, such as the laser, microchip semiconductors and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
