Quantum Tunnelling Technologies

  1. Jun 18, 2011 #1
    Hey guys what are some technologies that use Quantum Tunneling? Ive been looking on Google and i havnt had much luck! I just need a point in the right direction so links to websites and such would be greatly appreciated!

    BTW when searching google i found Quantum Tunnelling Composites which they use in touch screen phones but most sites dont explain the physics behind it. It mainly talks about applications in the real world.

    Look up the use in flat panel displays of field emitters.
