@article{Cane2021LocalizationED, title={Localization effects due to a random magnetic field on heat transport in a harmonic chain}, author={Gaetan Cane and Junaid Majeed Bhat and Abhishek Dhar and C'edric Bernardin}, journal={Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment}, year={2021}, volume={2021} }

We consider a harmonic chain of N oscillators in the presence of a disordered magnetic field. The ends of the chain are connected to heat baths and we study the effects of the magnetic field randomness on heat transport. The disorder, in general, causes localization of the normal modes, due to which a system becomes insulating. However, for this system, the localization length diverges as the normal mode frequency approaches zero. Therefore, the low frequency modes contribute to the…

It is shown that "thermal conductivity" depends not just on the system itself but also on the spectral properties of the heat baths, which give other power laws including the "Fourier behavior" J approximately 1/N.

The role of quadratic on-site pinning potentials on determining the size (N) dependence of the disorder averaged steady state heat current J in an isotopically disordered harmonic chain connected to stochastic heat baths is investigated and it is found that the N dependence of J is the same and depends on the number of pinning centers present in the chain.
