Atomic Orbital Visualization

My attempt to create Atomic orbitals (1s,2s, 2px, 2py, 2pz, dxy, dxysqr)

Scale is arbitrary so feel free to adjust according to theory.


This is cool. I like how you merge the meshes of the separated lobes for the p,d,f orbitals!

Random thoughts:

  • I wonder what this would look like if you incorporated electron spins somehow…
  • Could be interesting to also show electro-positivity from protons in the nucleus, and later maybe…
  • Show/simulate hydrogen bonding (eg an aqueous solution) or just van der waals forces affecting the shell’s shape
  • ultimate prize - show covalent bonds’ electron cloud

Pretty cool!
