UNIVERSALITY ASPECTS OF METAL-NONMETAL TRANSITION IN CONDENSED MEDIA

Abstract:

Our objective in this paper is to provide a simple, conceptual, framework for describing the metalnonmetal (MNM) transition in systems that can be viewed in terms of a lattice of impurity states embedded in a host matrix. From an extensive analysis of experimental data, we find that a particular (scaled) form of the Mott criterion, nc13aH*=0.26±0.05, is applicable over a range of approximately 1010 in critical densities (nc) and approximately 600 in Bohr radii (aH*). Here aH* is defined as an...
