7.10 Localization

Abstract

This chapter provides literature on localization in disordered samples. In disordered samples, electron wavefunctions may be completely localized in space. The wave function amplitude decays as e-x/ξ, where ξ is the localization length. Transport proceeds by hopping among or tunneling through the isolated states. The conductance as a function of temperature exhibited drastic changes, indicating 1D localization. A drop in the conductivity with increasing magnetic field was assumed to be due to electron-electron interaction effects.
