A long one-dimensional wire with a finite density of strong random impurities is modeled as a chain of weakly coupled quantum dots. At low temperature T and applied voltage V its resistance is limited by breaks: randomly occurring clusters of quantum dots with a special length distribution pattern that inhibit the transport. Because of the interplay of… CONTINUE READING
