What is Quantum Tunneling Anyway?
When Electrons Start To Act Funny…
Quantum mechanics is very different from the classical approach.
Since my Ph.D. involves solving quantum transport equations, I also have to learn one or two things about quantum effects. One such effect is quantum tunneling.
And as I built my first numerical algorithm for the Liouville-von-Neumann equation based on a resonant tunneling diode, I needed to understand this effect early on.
