Broken time-reversal symmetry scattering at the Anderson transition



We study numerically the statistical properties of some scattering quantities for the Power-law Banded Random Matrix model at criticality in the absence of time-reversal symmetry, with a small number of single-channel leads attached to it. We focus on the average scattering matrix elements, the conductance probability distribution, and the shot noise power as a function of the effective bandwidth b of the model. We find a smooth transition from insulating- to metallic-like behavior in the scattering properties of the model by increasing b. We contrast our results with existing random matrix theory predictions.
