Abstract

Abstract A new procedure is presented for evaluating the transit time for tunneling with a one-dimensional barrier. For large barriers the most probable energy fluctuations have a minimum product of their magnitude and the transit time, and the semi-classical time is obtained. There is a separate solution for very small barriers, in which the transit time is indeterminate but bounded.
