7. Movements of particles in deep potentials


    The movement of a wave package in a deep potential differs drastically from the movement of a classical particle. The reason for this phenomenon is the dispersion of the wave package. When its width gets larger than the width of the potential, the probability dense of the particle fills the entire potential. But the widening cannot go on for any time, because all time dependent processes are periodic in time in this potential. This means especially, that the wave package returns to its original shape after a certain time.
