Paper Abstract

We calculated, for the first time, the tunneling time (phase time) and post-tunneling positions for TM photon tunneling in a frustrated total internal reflection (FTIR) structure. This is done by converting the TM photon tunneling problem in a FTIR structure to an electron tunneling problem for a heterostructure potential barrier with a position-dependent effective mass. The derived results are compared with FTIR tunneling cases of TE photons.
