Abstract.

The Dirac equation has been applied to fermions scattering from the downward potential step. The results show that some particles do not fall off the edge of the step and reflect. Then, based on the de Broglie-Bohm interpretation of quantum mechanics (Bohmian mechanics) and Bohmian trajectories we have resolved the problem. Lastly, a phenomenological study of the Bohmian trajectory of the Klein paradox has been discussed.
