Abstract

Quantum coherence C and site distinguishability DQ are studied for an electron in several typical nonuniform lattice systems. Numerical results show that both C and DQ can reflect electron localization properties. At Anderson transition, an electron exhibiting relatively more wavelike behavior changes to relatively more particlelike behavior.
