This book presents a new approach to quantum mechanical tunnelling and its applications to various fields of physics. The conventional concepts of this phenomenon, which are based on a time-dependent or time-independent approach, are inadequate in providing explanations for 1) the limit of resolution of field-emission microscope, 2) the Esaki-Integral representation the tunnelling I-V characteristics of tunnel diodes, 3) the Josephson effect, 4) the tunnelling time, etc. The new theory presented here not only provides adequate explanation for all the above-mentioned effects but also gives an accurate expression for tunnelling current density which predicts results closer to the experimentally observed values. The new presentation also provides a more comprehensive description of the results obtained using older treatment.
