Quantum - Potential Barrier

Hi there,

Was wondering about the potential barrier problem when Eo>V. I have figured out the expression for the Transmission coeffient (after a lot of algebra) and am now wondering, what happens when I vary the width of the barrier, obviously there is greater transmission when the barrier is narrower but would there be any other effects? Also I am wondering if anyone could suggest what happens when we vary the values of k1 and k2.

Thanks for your help


Leila

It would help if you said what k1 and k2 are. These are not universally agreed upon variables.

Also, if you have the expression for the transmission coefficient, can't you read off your equation what would happen if you vary the parameters?
