Energy changes of a particle tunneling through a barrier

  1. May 18, 2008 #1
    Hi everyone,

    just wanting to know if anyone could help me out about particles tunnelling through square barriers with inital energy E<Vo.

    Does the energy of the particle change as it tunnels through the square barrier?
