RIBEIRO, M.A. Cândido et al. Quantum scattering in elementary potential problems. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2004, vol.26, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 1806-1117.

A potential which encompasses all kinds of rectangular one-dimensional potentials is studied in the context of quantum particle scattering. We calculate the reflection and transmission coefficients for this general potential. The effects of the potential asymmetry on transmission, at energies below and above barrier, are studied, as well.

Keywords : quantum scattering; transmission and reflection coefficients; one-dimensional potentials; asymmetry effects.
