The anomalous hop rate of localized particles in a marginal Fermi liquid

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The hop rate of a localized particle in newly proposed marginal Fermi liquid is examined. It is found that due to the disappearance of the quasi-particle spectral weight at the Fermi surface, the hop rate behaves quite differently from that in all other materials. In particular, the hop rate increases with temperature at finite T, contrary to that in all other known materials. Furthermore, localization can occur at extremely low T. The experimental consequence of this prediction, as well as its connection with muon spin relaxation, is also discussed.
