We consider the motion of a cylinder with the same mass and size as a curling rock, but with a very different contact geometry. Whereas the contact area of a curling rock is a thin annulus having a radius of 6.25 cm and width of about 4 mm, the contact area of the cylinder investigated takes the form of several linear segments regularly spaced around the(More)
We report a new method that gives atomic resolution in the reconstruction of simulated holograms in theoretical low energy electron point source (LEEPS) microscopy, and that uses a screen size that is commensurate with screen sizes used in experimental LEEPS. The method exploits the spherical symmetry in the electron waves emerging from the source. We(More)
We compare the exact tunneling time with the quasi-classical tunneling time for idealized potentials. We examine three one-dimensional cases where the potential is chosen to have a simple form. In each case, the exact tunneling time and the quasi-classical time differ significantly. In one case, the two differ in magnitude by a factor of about ten. In(More)
