Voices on the German Edition:
"The team of authors sensitively introduces the reader to the world of quantum physics. Nimtz and Haibel explain to the reader step–by–step the prerequisites from the tunnel effect to function. ... On the whole, anyone interested in natural science will really enjoy this book." – Associated Press
"...this small book presents the latest results on the tunnel effect in a very understandable way, results that do not destroy the scientists′ view of the world, but expand it in a surprising way, urging one to think again. ...its strikingly demonstrates what pure research is and what it can show us." Zeitschrift fur Physikalische Chemie
(Bettina Schwoch, Associated Press)
"The authors succeed perfectly in presenting the tunnel effect in a readily understandable way, after first defining the basic terms space, time and speed. This work almost entirely without formulas is comprehensible for readers having only a basic knowledge of atomic physics and may be recommended as a supplement to more comprehensive books on the topics."
(Michael Mücke, ekz–Informationsdienst)
" ... this small book presents the latest results on the tunnel effect in a very understandable way, results that do not destroy the scientist′s view of the world, but expand it in a surprising way, urging one to think again. I hope this book ... reaches a wide public, not least because it strikingly demonstrates what pure research is and what it can show us."
(H. Baumgärtel, FU Berlin, Zeitschrift für Physikalische Chemie 2004)
"Although this book may sometimes be lacking in scientific depth due to the large amount of interconnections and examples given, it wins in terms of enthusiasm and the urge to research. It is this enthusiasm for physics that this book knows how to strongly convey."
(Kai Dieckmann, Munich, Physik in unserer Zeit 5/2004)
