Abstract

This supporting document for the Piece-Wise Constant Potential Barriers Tool serves as a first-time user guide. Some basic ideas about quantum mechanical tunneling are introduced in addition to how device geometry influences tunneling probability. The transfer matrix and tight-binding formulations are also compared.
