Quantum Tunneling and Wave Packets is a Java base simulation application that will enable you to watch quantum "particles" tunnel through barriers.
You can now use this tool to explore the properties of the wave functions that describe these particles.
This application will enable you to: visualize wave functions for constant, step, and barrier potentials, visualize both plane wave and wave packet solutions to the Schrodinger equation and recognize how they relate to each other.
You will also be able to interpret and distinguish the real part, imaginary part, and absolute value of the wave function, as well as the probability density, recognize how the probability of reflection and transmission of a wave are related to the energy of the wave, the energy of the step or barrier, and the width of the barrier.
Furthermore, you can use the software to recognize that a plane wave has a single value of energy and a wave packet has a range of a range of energies and explain how incoming and reflected waves interfere.
