Theory of Anderson localization III: diagrammatic approach and experiment
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Peter Wölfle, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Abstract: A self-consistent equation for the diffusion coefficient is reviewed and interpreted. The results obtained account very well for the diffusion coefficient not too close to criticality. A recent generalization of the theory to open finite size systems is applied to experiments on localization of acoustic waves, with good success. Recent experiments on the localization of ultracold atoms by a random potential are considered. Dynamic localization and the Anderson transition in the kicked rotor model is reviewed.
