  1. Quantum Mechanics: Tunneling

    08 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Dragica Vasileska, Gerhard Klimeck

    In quantum mechanics, quantum tunnelling is a micro nanoscopic phenomenon in which a particle violates the principles of classical mechanics by penetrating a potential barrier or impedance higher than the kinetic energy of the particle. A barrier, in terms of quantum tunnelling, may be a form of...
