Problem 9.6: Describe each of the potential energy functions that the incident plane wave is experiencing

T = | R =

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

Drag the slider to change the energy of the incident wave.  In the animation, ħ = 2m = 1.

  1. Describe the potential energy function that the incident plane wave experiences for each animation.
  2. How does the potential energy function affect the transmission and reflection coefficients for each animation?
