Anderson Localization for Very Strong Speckle Disorder
MetadataShow full item record
We evaluate the localization length of the wave (or Schr¨odinger) equation in the presence of a disordered speckle potential. This is relevant for experiments on cold atoms in optical speckle potentials. We focus on the limit of large disorder, where the Born approximation breaks down and derive an expression valid in the “quasi-metallic” phase at large disorder. This phase becomes strongly localized and the effective mobility edge disappears.
