Title: Quantum Tunneling Activity
Url: http://et.portal.concord.org/preview
Publisher: Concord Consortium
Description: This resource provides an introductory activity on the basics of quantum tunneling. As the activity states, "Real-world examples are given to demonstrate the importance of this effect to modern technologies." The activity covers concepts such as crossing a barrier both at the macroscopic and microscopic scale, tunneling leakage in computer chips, tunnel injection and release in flash memory and DNA sequencing. This module allows students to test their knowledge as they go. Although a preview of the activity is available, instructors and students are encouraged to sign up with the Electron Technologies site before starting to use these materials.
