  • 2019- 2021, MSc Negative mobility, sliding, and delocalization for stochastic networks
    with Doron Cohen

    Abstract/Description: We consider prototype configurations for quasi-one-dimensional stochastic networks that exhibit negative mobility, meaning that current decreases or even reversed as the bias is increased. We then explore the implications of disorder. In particular, we ask whether lower and upper bias thresholds restrict the possibility to witness nonzero current (sliding and antisliding transitions, respectively), and whether a delocalization effect manifests itself (crossover from over-damped to under-damped relaxation). In the latter context detailed analysis of the relaxation spectrum as a function of the bias is provided for both on-chain and off-chain disorder.
