0 N ov 2 00 8 Quantum transfer matrix method for one-dimensional disordered electronic systems

Abstract

For real solids, the perfect periodicity is an idealization, while the imperfections are of great importance for transport properties. The broken translational symmetry makes the system deviate from the extended Bloch waves behavior, and in some cases, to localized states. As pointed out in Ref. [1], we can not adopt the model of ordered systems to… (More)
