Details

This is a minor generalization of the plot shown in Fig. 2a of [1]. It shows the transmission coefficient for a plane wave incident on a barrier of height . The parameters for graphene given in that paper have been used: Dirac speed , energy , Fermi momentum ; the width of barrier ranges from and lies between .
