abstract

  • We consider the localization of independent electron orbitals in double-layer two-dimensional electron systems in the strong magnetic field limit. Our study is based on numerical Thouless number calculations for realistic microscopic models and on transfer matrix calculations for phenomenological network models. The microscopic calculations indicate a crossover regime for weak interlayer tunneling in which the correlation length exponent appears to increase. Comparison of network model calculations with microscopic calculations casts doubt on their generic applicability.
