QuantumGLThis is an OpenGL-based 3D-visualization tool written by Wolfgang Thaller. QuantumGL is especially useful for the visualization of quantum-mechanical wave functions. I have used QuantumGL, in particular, to create the three-dimensional visualizations of the hydrogen atom with and without spin. See some examples here. Many more examples are on the CD-ROM accompanying the book "Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics".
QuantumGL can show (transparent) isosurfaces and slice planes of complex-valued data fields in three dimensions, and flux lines of vector fields. It can make use of this color map for complex numbers, and has built in functions for generating animations. However, the user interface and the documentation are not very polished.
The download contains versions of the application for Windows and for Macintosh (OS-X), a reference manual and an example.
