Condensed Matter Theory Group Seminar
Localization of quantum particles and classical waves in disordered media (Part II)
Date: Monday, October 17th
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: 5310 Chamberlin
Speaker: Peter Wölfle, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Abstract: In the second lecture I review a self-consistent theory of localization and discuss its recent application to interpret experiments on the localization of acoustic waves. The phase relaxation rate in electronic systems is also considered, in particular with respect to recent experiments on ferromagnetic disordered metals. Recent experiments on the localization of ultracold atoms in an optical random potential are reviewed.
