AMPSPlot

AMPSPlot[dm]
draws the angular-momentum probability surface for the density matrix dm, where dm is assumed to represent the 2 J+1 Zeeman sublevels of a state with angular momentum J. AMPSPlot[dec]
draws the angular-momentum probability surface for the spherical-tensor decomposition of a density matrix.
The angular-momentum probability surface represents the probability of measuring the maximum projection of angular momentum in a given direction. It is the quantum analog of the classical angular-momentum distribution for an ensemble.
  • AMPSPlot takes the same options as SphericalPlot3D, with the following changes to the defaults:
AxesFalsewhether to draw axes
BoxedFalsewhether to draw the bounding box
