The Quantum Exchange website will be unavailable on Saturday, August 1 due to network maintenance at the American Center for Physics.


Welcome to the Quantum Exchange, a collection of information and resources for teachers of quantum physics. The resources in this collection are supplements to standard quantum textbooks and include student activities, background information, and applications. New users may create an account to personalize their use of the Quantum Exchange. This will allow them to suggest resources, add comments, and organize resources.
