This resource illustrates the construction of scattering state wavefunctions in one dimension for a piece-wise constant potential. A barrier or well can be created from two potential steps, that can be of different heights. Students are then asked to plot the electron wavefunction in this potential by changing its nature, amplitude, wavelength, and phase in the three different potential regions. A correct solution requires students to work through the problem using the parameters given.
