# Role of phason defects on the conductance of a one-dimensional quasicrystal.

@article{Moulopoulos1996RoleOP, title={Role of phason defects on the conductance of a one-dimensional quasicrystal.}, author={Moulopoulos and Roche}, journal={Physical review. B, Condensed matter}, year={1996}, volume={53 1}, pages={ 212-220 } }

We have studied the influence of a particular kind of phason-defect on the Landauer resistance of a Fibonacci chain. Depending on parameters, we sometimes find the resistance to decrease upon introduction of defect or temperature, a behavior that also appears in real quasicrystalline materials. We demonstrate essential differences between a standard tight-binding model and a full continuous model. In the continuous case, we study the conductance in relation to the underlying chaotic map and its…
