Groundstate(s) of the 2D electron liquid (T 0) Major question to be addressed: Outline Historical intro: classical, semiclassical, quantum transport and 1-parameter scaling MIT in high mobility 2D systems The puzzle of the metallic-like conduction Quantifying e-e interaction in 2D Transport in the critical regime: 2 parameter RG theory Data analysis in the vicinity of the fixed point

1.1. Classical charge transport 1. T >>h D. Phonon scattering 1/T 2. T << h D. Phonon scattering 1/T 5 3.T << T F. e-e scattering 1/T 2 4. T << T F. Impurity scattering Const Note (a): Note (a): There is no σ(T) dependence in the T=0 limit ! (within the classical approximation, for non-interacting electrons ) + Umklapp

1.2.Semiclassical concept of transport (1960) Ioffe-Regel criterion A.F. Ioffe and A.R. Regel, Prog. Semicond. 4, 237 (1960). Abram F. Ioffe Anatoly R. Regel “minimum metallic conductivity” Nevil Mott (1905-96)

5
Possible behavior of resistivity (dimensionality is irrelevant): Semiclassical picture: MIT at T = 0 (1970’s)

6
All electrons in 2D become localized at T 0 1.3. Quantum concept of transport (1979): E.Abrahams T.V. Ramakrishnan A B Competition between dimensionality and interefrence Interference of electron waves causes localization for ln(1/T ) Note (b) P.W. Anderson D.Khmelnitskii L.P.Gorkov

7
1.4. Scaling ideas in the quantum transport picture: Thouless (1974, 77); Abrahams, Anderson, Licciardello, Ramakrishnan (’79); Wegner (’79). Renormalization Group transformation: The block size is increased from l tr to L 1-Parameter scaling equation At the MIT: g(L) – dimensionless conductance for a sample (size L) in units of e 2 /h For 2D system: β is always <0; there is no metallic state and no MIT

8
One-parameter scaling and experiment Note (c) Note (c) : The sign of dρ/dT at finite T is not indicative of the metallic or insulating state Low-mobility sample (μ=1.5 10 3 cm 2/ Vs) n

2.Metal-insulator transition in high mobility 2D system S.Kravchenko, VP, et al., PRB 50, 8039 (1994) N ~10 11 cm -2 density =4,5m 2 /Vs

10
Similar (T) behavior was found in many other 2D systems: p-GaAs, n-GaAs, p-Si/SiGe, n-Si/SiGe, n-SOI, p-AlAs/GaAs, etc. Y.Hanein et al. PRL (1998) Papadakis, Shayegan, PRB (1998) n-AlAs-GaAsp-GaAs/AlAs ( / )

11
There is no metallic state and no MIT - in the noninteracting 2D systems Spin-orbit interaction ? Electron-phonon interaction ? Too low temperature and too weak e-ph coupling Not renormalized Electron-electron interaction

12
High mobility E ee /E F = r s ~10 density =4,5m 2 /Vs

13
13 e-e interaction in Si-MOS structures Note1: high mobility Within the concept of the e-e correlations, the role of high mobility in the 2D MIT becomes transparent The high mobility: Increases and, hence, the amplitude of interaction corrections ( T ); Translates down the critical density range (decreases the density of impurities n i ) Increases the magnitude of interaction effects ( F 0 n ).

14
2.1. Signatures of the critical phenomenon - QPT Mirror reflection symmetry: ( n,T)/ c = c / (- n,T) data scaling / c = f [T/T 0 (n)] Critical behavior T 0 |n-n c | -z S.V.Kravchenko, W.E.Mason, G.E.Bowker, J.E.Furneaux, V.M.Pudalov, M.D'Iorio, PRB 1995 Symmetry: holds here and is missing outside

17 2.2. Problems of the data (mis)interpretation If “MIT” is a QPT, it is expected: c to be universal, scaling persists to the lowest T horizontal “separatrix” c f(T) z, are universal Experimentally, however, c =0.5 5 is sample dependent, z =0.9 2 is sample dependent, reflection symmetry fails at low T and at high T>2K ins = c exp(T 0 /T) p1 (p 1 =0.5 1 ) met = c exp(-T 0 /T) p2 + 0 (p 2 =0.5 1) separatrix is T-dependent The failure of the OPST approach is not surprising: interactions How to proceed in the 2-parameter problem ? Which parameters should be universal ? Definitions of the critical density, critical resistivity etc. ? In analogy with the 1-parameter scaling:

33
Scaling of the c (T) data Note: The quality of the data scaling relative the tilted separatrix r c (T) Separatrix – is a power low function, with no maxima and inflection. Exponent must be < 1. separatrix

36
Current understanding of the 2D systems “Metallic” conduction in 2D systems for >> e 2 /h - the result of e-e interactions Interplay of disorder and e-e interaction radically changes the common believe that the metallic state can not exist in 2D Agreement of the data with RG theory and the 2- parameter data scaling M-I-T is a quantum phase transition In RG theory, the 2D metal always exist for n v =2 (or at large 2 for n v =1), whereas M-I-T is a quantum phase transition Summary More realistic RG calculations are needed (finite n v, two-loop)
