School on Anderson Localization: landscape theory, experiments with ultracold atoms

Organizers: T. Bourdel, P. Pelletier, A. Aspect, M. Filoche

While Anderson localization is more than 60 years old, it is still an active subject both in theory and experiments. In this school, we intend to review both the usual theory of Anderson localization as well as the novel landscape theory. Experimentally, we will focus on clean systems enabling accurate measurements with a specific emphasis on the ultracold atom experiments.

The question of ergodicity and many-body localization in disordered systems will also be addressed. The goal is to foster knowledge in order to tackle the open problems in the field. This school is organized and financed by the Simons collaboration the localization of waves. It will include tutorials, invited, and contributed talks.

Speakers include:

  • M. Filoche (landscape theory of localization)
  • V. Josse (Anderson localization with cold atoms)
  • D. Delande (Anderson localization, state of the art and perspectives), to be confirmed
