We study one-dimensional tight-binding models with a slowly varying, incommensurate off-diagonal modulation on the hopping amplitude. Interestingly, we find that the mobility edges can appear only when the off-diagonal (hopping) disorder is included, which is different from the known results induced by the diagonal disorder. We further study the situation where the off-diagonal and diagonal disorder terms (the incommensurate potential) are both included and find that the locations of mobility…

Majorana zero modes, unconventional real-complex transition, and mobility edges in a one-dimensional non-Hermitian quasi-periodic lattice
In this paper, a one-dimensional non-Hermitian quasiperiodic p-wave superconductor without PT -symmetry is studied. By analyzing the spectrum, we discovered there still exists real-complex energy

TLDR
It is found that the quasi-periodic disordered models can be approximated by an ensemble of periodic models and an index is proposed to indicate the degree of localization of each eigenstate.

TLDR
This model is a first example of a nearest neighbor tight binding model manifesting a mobility edge protected by a duality symmetry, and introduces the typical density of states as an order parameter for localization in quasiperiodic systems.

The mobility edge since 1967
A mobility edge is defined as the energy separating localised and non-localised states in the conduction or valence bands of a non-crystalline material, or the impurity band of a doped semiconductor.
