Phase correlations in one-dimensional disordered systems

Journal Article (Academic article)

The correlation function of the phases of a quantum particle in a one-dimensional random potential is defined and calculated analytically and numerically. Away from eigen-states it decays exponentially with the phase correlation length equal to half of the localization length, while for the eigenstates it saturates at nonzero value.
