What are the units of the probability flux j?

[tex]\vec j = \frac{\hbar}{2mi}\left(\Psi^* \vec \nabla \Psi - \Psi \vec \nabla \Psi^*\right)[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The units of psi are probability amplitude and the units of del(psi) are probability amplitude per unit area, so I would say the units are psi* del psi are probability density per unit area?
