Motion of an Electron Wave Packet in a Uniform Electric Field
Churchill, John N.
American Journal of Physics, 46, 5, 537-42, May 78
Energy eigenstates are superimposed in order to form a wave packet for an electron propagating in one dimension under the influence of a uniform, time-dependent electric field. A graphical method is presented by which one can obtain both the position and shape of the envelope. (BB)
