Electrons and Disorder in Solids

V.F. Gantmakher

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents phenomenological scaling theory of quantum metal-insulator transition of non-interacting electrons. It confirms the existence of the transition in 3D-system; and elucidates the relation between the correlation length and the conductance, the shape of the critical region, and the temperature dependence of the conductance inside it (T1/3-law). For 2D-systems, it predicts that there is no transition, only a weak-to-strong localization crossover.

Keywords:   conductance, correlation length, critical region, quantum phase transition, T1/3-law, weak-to-strong localization crossover
