Traversal Time for Tunneling

Landauer, R.
Published in Physical Review Letters. 1982, vol. 49, no. 23, p. 1739-1742
Abstract One of several contradictory existing results for the time a tunneling particle interacts with its barrier is confirmed, by considering tunneling through a time-modulated barrier. At low modulation frequencies the traversing particle sees a static barrier. At high frequencies the particle tunnels through the time-averaged potential, but can do it inelastically, losing or gaining modulation quanta. The transition between the two regimes yields ?dx[m / 2(V-E)]1 / 2 for the traversal time.
