22
To take home so far: Conductivity is finite only due to broken translational invariance (disorder) Spectrum (averaged) in disordered system is gapless Metal-Insulator transition (Anderson) is encoded into properties of the wave-functions

36
**Probability Distribution**

Note: metal insulator Can not be crossover, thus, transition!!!

37
**But the Anderson’s argument is not complete:**

38
**On the real lattice, there are multiple paths**

connecting two points:

39
**Amplitude associated with the paths**

interfere with each other:

40
**To complete proof of metal insulator transition**

one has to show the stability of the metal

41
Summary of Lecture # 1 Conductivity is finite only due to broken translational invariance (disorder) Spectrum (averaged) in disordered system is gapless (Lifshitz tail) Metal-Insulator transition (Anderson) is encoded into properties of the wave-functions extended localized Metal Insulator

42
Distribution function of the local densities of states is the order parameter for Anderson transition insulator metal

43
Resonant pair Perturbation theory in (I/W) is convergent!

44
**Perturbation theory in (I/W) is divergent!**

45
**To establish the metal insulator transition**

we have to show the convergence of (W/I) expansion!!!

46

52
**Sometimes you may see this…**

MISLEADING… DOES NOT EXIST FOR GAUSSIAN DISORDER AT ALL

53
**Quantum corrections (weak localization)**

(Gorkov, Larkin, Khmelnitskii, 1979) Finite but singular 3D 2D 1D E. Abrahams, P. W. Anderson, D. C. Licciardello, and T.V. Ramakrishnan, (1979) Thouless scaling + ansatz:

54
**2D 1D Metals are NOT stable in one- and two dimensions**

Localization length: Drude + corrections Anderson model,

55
**Exact solutions for one-dimension**

U(x) Nch Gertsenshtein, Vasil’ev (1959) Nch =1

56
**Exact solutions for one-dimension**

U(x) Nch Efetov, Larkin (1983) Dorokhov (1983) Nch >>1 Universal conductance fluctuations Altshuler (1985); Stone; Lee, Stone (1985) Weak localization Strong localization

57
**Other way to analyze the stability of metal**

insulator Explicit calculation yields: Metal ??? Metal is unstable

58
To take home so far: Interference corrections due to closed loops are singular; For d=1,2 they diverges making the metalic phase of non-interacting particles unstable; Finite size system is described as a good metal, if , in other words For , the properties are well described by Anderson model with replacing lattice constant.

59
**Regularization of the weak localization by inelastic scatterings (dephasing)**

Does not interfere with e-h pair

60
**Regularization of the weak localization by inelastic scatterings (dephasing)**

But interferes with e-h pair e-h pair

61
Phase difference: e-h pair e-h pair

62
**Phase difference: e-h pair e-h pair**

- length of the longest trajectory; e-h pair e-h pair

63
**Inelastic rates with energy transfer**

64
**Electron-electron interaction**

Altshuler, Aronov, Khmelnitskii (1982) Significantly exceeds clean Fermi-liquid result

65
**Almost forward scattering:**

Ballistic diffusive

66
To take home so far: Interference corrections due to closed loops are singular; For d=1,2 they diverges making the metalic phase of non-interacting particles unstable; Interactions at finite T lead to finite System at finite temperature is described as a good metal, if , in other words For , the properties are well described by ??????

67

68
**Inelastic processes: transitions between localized states**

energy mismatch (inelastic lifetime)–1 (any mechanism)

69

Variable Range Hopping Sir N.F. Mott (1968) energy difference can be matched by a phonon Mechanism-dependent prefactor Without Coulomb gap A.L.Efros, B.I.Shklovskii (1975) Optimized phase volume Any bath with a continuous spectrum of delocalized excitations down to w = 0 will give the same exponential

𝜆 𝑒−𝑝ℎ ⟶ 0 ????? Drude “metal” Electron phonon Interaction does not enter “insulator”

71
**Q: Can we replace phonons with e-h pairs and obtain phonon-less VRH?**

Drude “metal” Electron phonon Interaction does not enter “insulator”

72
