Electron Tunneling explained by Nobel Prize winner Ivar Giaever. Wave-mechanical tunneling, quantum mechanical tunneling. John Fisher's tennis ball example is given. Giaever's experiments in the tunneling effect led to winning the prize in 1973. The work was done at General Electric. It is an evanescent wave coupling effect in the context of quantum mechanics. particles can pass through solid objects without making a hole. Giaever talks about his use of a Vacuum Evaporator to create the effect. This uses an aluminum pellet, mask, microscope slide in a bell jar.
