Tunneling Time in Quantum Mechanics The longstanding issue of how much time it takes a particle to tunnel through quantum barriers is discussed; in particular, the phenomenon known as the Hartman effect is reviewed. A calculation of the dwell time for two successive rectangular barriers in the opaque limit is given and the result depends on the barrier widths and hence does not lead to superluminal tunneling or the Hartman effect.autMcDonald, ScottthsDavies, PauldgcComfort, JosephdgcMcCartney, M.
