Region I ( x < 0 ) TISE can be written ! h 2 2 m d 2 " dx 2 + U = E where U= 6 eV and E = 10 eV so d 2 ! dx 2 = " k 2 where k 2 = 2 m h 2 ( E ! U ) so solution in Region I can be written as I = Ae ikx + Be " ikx Region II ( x > 0 ) TISE can be written ! h 2 2 m d 2 dx 2 + U = E where U= 0 so d 2 dx 2 = " k 1 2 where k 1 2 = 2 m h 2 E so solution in Region II can be written as II = Ce ik 1 x + De " ik 1 x = Ce ik 1 x since D must be zero (no wave coming in from large x region) At x= 0, I = II and d I dx = d II dx Thus A + B = C ikA ! ikB = ik 1 C We need only B/A and C/A Solutions are B A = k ! k 1 k + k 1 and C A = 2 k k + k 1 so T = C A 2 = 4 k 2 ( k + k 1 ) 2 = 4 (1 + k 1 / k ) 2 and R = B A 2 = ( k ! k 1 ) 2 ( k + k 1 ) 2 = (1 ! k 1 / k ) 2 (1 + k 1 / k ) 2

Now k 1 / k = E E ! U = 10 4 = 1.58 So, T = 0.6 and R = 0.05 Obviously R + T is not = 1 But (k 1 /k) T + R = 1 This expresses the fact that current conservation at the interface requires that k A 2 = k B 2 + k 1 C 2 so ( k 1 / k ) C A 2 + B A 2 = 1 2. (a) in Region I (x < 0 ) , solution of TISE for U = 0 gives ! I = Ae ikx + Be " ikx where k 2 = 2 m h 2 E similarly in region III ( x > L ) where also U = 0 III = Fe ikx + Ge " ikx = Fe ikx

Unformatted text preview: since G has to be zero ( no wave coming back from large x) In region II ( 0 < x < L ) where U = U (non-zero and assumed to be greater than E) II = Ce " x + De # x where 2 = 2 m h 2 ( U " E ) (b) Wavefunction and its derivative continuous at x=o gives A + B = C + D (1) ikA ! ikB = " C ! D (2) Same conditions at x=L gives Ce ! L + De " L = Fe ikL (3) Ce L " De " L = ikFe ikL (4) (c) We are given that L >> 1, so we can set e ! L to zero in above equations Then the only way (3) and (4) can be simultaneously satisfied is if C = F = 0. Then Eqs. (1) and (2) become: A + B = D A B = (i /k)D Solution gives B A = k ! i k + i so R = B A 2 = 1...
