Three-dimensional localization of ultracold atoms in an optical disordered potential

We report a study of three-dimensional (3D) localization of ultracold atoms suspended against gravity, and released in a 3D optical disordered potential with short correlation lengths in all

Numerical studies of localization in disordered systems

The results of numerical work on the Anderson model of disordered systems are presented. The sensitivity of the eigenvalues to the choice of periodic or antiperiodic boundary conditions is used as a

Metal-insulator transitions in non-crystalline systems

Abstract This review gives an account of the changes in our understanding of the metal-insulator transition in non-crystalline systems since the application to it of scaling theory and experiments on

REVIEW ARTICLE: Manifestations of Berry's phase in molecules and condensed matter

Since the appearance of Berry's seminal paper in 1984, geometric phases have been discovered in virtually all fields of physics. Here we address molecules and solids, and we limit our scope to the

Observation of two-dimensional Anderson localisation of ultracold atoms

The design of an experiment measuring the 2D transport of ultracold atoms between two reservoirs, which are connected by a channel containing pointlike disorder, overcomes many of the technical challenges that have hampered observation of localisation in previous works.

A quantal system in an eigenstate, slowly transported round a circuit C by varying parameters R in its Hamiltonian Ĥ(R), will acquire a geometrical phase factor exp{iγ(C)} in addition to the familiar

Kohn's localization in the insulating state: one-dimensional lattices, crystalline versus disordered.

A quantitative measure of a "localization length" lambda, finite in insulators and divergent in metals, is adopted, which shows that the corresponding values of lambda differ by a large factor for the same alloy composition.

Topological insulators and superconductors

Topological insulators are new states of quantum matter which cannot be adiabatically connected to conventional insulators and semiconductors. They are characterized by a full insulating gap in the

Three-Dimensional Anderson Localization of Ultracold Matter

Three-dimensional Anderson localization of noninteracting ultracold matter is observed by allowing a spin-polarized atomic Fermi gas to expand into a disordered potential and a two-component density distribution emerges consisting of an expanding mobile component and a nondiffusing localized component.

Exact analytic solution for the generalized Lyapunov exponent of the two-dimensional Anderson localization

The Anderson localization problem in one and two dimensions is solved analytically via the calculation of the generalized Lyapunov exponents. This is achieved by making use of signal theory. The
