I am interested in learning more about Klein's paradox. My QM book said you need QFT to treat it properly. I did a quick internet search but found no expository materials. Even Wikipedia had no mention. This forum had very little of substance that I could find on the subject.
Maybe someone can...
When people discuss the Lorentz transformation, the start talking about "groups " of transformations SL(2,C), SO(1,3) etc.
Looks impressive! Where can I learn this stuff too?
I asked a similar question in the Linear Algebra section but it gets less traffic
I am new to solid state. I just read about fermi gas in a cube. For some reason the author used periodic boundary conditions? Why didn't they choose finite well potential where the height of the well is related to the work function?
I would like to demonstrate electron tunneling in my Modern Physics lab class.
Does anyone know of how to set such an experiment up?
We have a lot of equipment and $$$ available, so that's not a problem.
I don't want to ask the prof beforehand because he's kinda dumb.
I am reading that the standard way to discuss tunneling is via imaginary action.
The reference cited is J.S. Langer, Ann. Phys. 1967.
(1) What is the full name of Ann. Phys. so I can look up this paper?
(2) What textbook can I acquire to learn this technique?
I am trying to learn something about how experimental physics is done.
I am very new at it and am looking for experienced guidance.
A friend of mine (zapperz) suggested that a good way to measure the effect of a
magnetic field on electrons in the tunneling state is to have the...
I am interested in measuring the effects of a magnetic field on an electron in a tunneling state. I know very little about solid state and I have very little experimental experience.
In order to learn what is required to perform such an experiment, I thought I would pose my question here...
