written by the Kansas State Physics Education Research Group and Dean A. Zollman
This resource illustrates the motion of a Gaussian wavepacket in one dimension scattering off of a barrier.  The shape and size of the barrier can be changed, including creating a double barrier.  The width, initial position, and total energy of the wavefunction can all be changed as well.  Dimensionless units are used.
