Abstract

Performing a two-cutoff scaling in 2+μ dimensions, we find that an Anderson transition does take place in the presence of the spin-orbit interaction. The mobility edge is shifted to lower values and the conductivity in the metallic phase has the form f=(e22)3/4-(d-2)g*f(Ls.o.3/4), where f(Ls.o.3/4) is a crossover function, 1+32 (3/4Ls.o.)d-2, 3/4 is the localization length, Ls.o. is the spin-orbit diffusion length, and g* is the Anderson critical conductance.
