We analyze the effects of inelastic scattering on the tunneling time theoretically, using generalized Nelson’s quantum mechanics. This generalization enables us to describe a quantum system with optical potential and channel couplings in a real-time stochastic approach, which seems to give us a new insight into quantum mechanics beyond Copenhagen interpretation.
