Optimal barrier subdivision for Kramers’ escape rate

Abstract

We examine the effect of subdividing the potential barrier along the reaction coordinate on Kramers’ escape rate for a model potential. Using the known supersymmetric potential approach, we show the existence of an optimal number of subdivisions that maximises the rate.
