Free Wave Packet
Tunneling through a Barrier
Tunneling over a Well
Example: Tunneling Microscope
Maybe in lab
Time Dependent Wave Equation
What is the assumption Junior?
Free Wave Packet in One Dimension
For one-dimension we have
Recall we make up a wave packet using Fourier analysis.
E < U0
Potential Step Barrier
Potential Barrier E < U0
Solving these four equations
Wave Packet Impinging on A Step
For E > U0
Ammonia NH3 MASER
Quantum Tunneling (Esaki) Diode
A tunnel diode or Esaki diode is a type of semiconductor diode which is capable of very fast operation, well into the microwave frequency region, by using quantum mechanical effects.

Single electron transistor (SET)
Scattering: Potential Well E > U0
Lets guess the wavefunction!
Lets look at the simulation.
Is this a homework problem?
What if the potential is ?
…. called the finite square well.
A great Java tunneling simulation
Have file phet tunneling????
Also has good tunneling simulations
