Dynamical Localization of the Chalker-Coddington Model far from Transition

  • Joachim Asch
  • Olivier Bourget
  • Alain Joye


We study a quantum network percolation model which is numerically pertinent to the understanding of the delocalization transition of the quantum Hall effect. We show dynamical localization for parameters corresponding to edges of Landau bands, away from the expected transition point.
