The Quantum Exchange website will be unavailable Friday evening through Saturday afternoon as electrical work occurs in the American Center of Physics server room. Down time will begin at 6PM Eastern Time on Friday. Service is expected to resume by 6PM on Saturday, July 30.
This webpage introduces and shows the 3D tunneling of electrons from a Scanning Tunneling microscope to a carbon nanotube. A jellium potential model is used for the STM tip and nanotube. The spread of the wavepacket along the tube along with the tunneling can be observed.
