Abstract : Quantum potential barriers were simulated by a section of waveguide having a particular configuration and the particle tunneling phenomenon was simulated by electromagnetic propagation in waveguide. When an effective barrier length of approximately 1.15 to 1.19 times the actual length is used, there is good correlation with theory in transmission coefficient measurements for both abrupt and slowly varying potential barriers.
