An analysis is given of multiple internal reflections undergone by particles and phonons undergoing one-, two-, and three-dimensional tunneling. Results obtained by using the time dependent Schrödinger equation for nonrelativistic particles and those obtained with the time dependent Helmholtz equation for electromagnetic waves are presented. The paper closes with conclusions and considerations for future research.
