Medical Definition of Tunneling effect

1. In quantum mechanics, a particle approaching a potential energy barrier of finite extent has a chance (usually small) of tunneling through the barrier, even though it lacks the energy to go over the barrier. Tunneling plays a strong role in fusion reactions: particles which do not have enough energy to climb over the electrostatic energy barrier (into the region where nuclear attractions dominate) can still fuse by tunneling through.
