We determine the local density of states of one-dimensional incommensurate charge-density wave states in the presence of a strong impurity potential, which is modeled by a boundary. We find that the charge-density wave gets pinned at the impurity, which results in a singularity in the Fourier transform of the local density of states at momentum 2k_{F}. At energies above the spin gap we observe dispersing features associated with the spin and charge degrees of freedom, respectively. In the presence of an impurity magnetic field we observe the formation of a bound state localized at the impurity. All of our results carry over to the case of 1D Mott insulators by exchanging the roles of spin and charge degrees of freedom. We discuss the implications of our result for scanning tunneling microscopy experiments on spin-gap systems such as two-leg ladder cuprates.

Bethe ansatz solution of the asymmetric exclusion process with open boundaries.

Phys Rev Lett 95 (2005) 240601-

J de Gier, FHL Essler

We derive the Bethe ansatz equations describing the complete spectrum of the transition matrix of the partially asymmetric exclusion process with the most general open boundary conditions. For totally asymmetric diffusion we calculate the spectral gap, which characterizes the approach to stationarity at large times. We observe boundary induced crossovers in and between massive, diffusive, and Kardar-Parisi-Zhang scaling regimes.

The integrable sl(2/1) superspin chain and the spin quantum hall effect

Advances in Solid State Physics 45 (2005) 185-196

H Frahm, FHL Essler, H Saleur

The analysis of network models - either directly or by numerical studies of related quantum spin chains with super group symmetry - allows to gain insights into the delocalization transition of non-interacting two-dimensional electrons with disorder. Critical exponents determined this way are an important step towards the identification of the conformal field theory (CFT) describing the universal physics at the transition. To collect more information on the universal properties integrable versions of the corresponding superspin chains have been proposed. A simplified version avoiding some of the technical problems of the original problem is the sl(2|l) superspin chain related to the so-called spin quantum Hall transition. Analyzing the ground state and some low-lying excitations of this integrable chain we determine the central charge of the underlying CFT and obtain evidence for an infinite degeneracy of the finite size gaps that are possibly related to a continuous spectrum of the CFT. Finally, we compare our findings for the integrable chain with known properties of the (non-integrable) network model for the spin QHE. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
