T_c of disordered superconductors near the Anderson transition    [PDF]

I. M. Suslov
According to the Anderson theorem, the critical temperature T_c of a disordered superconductor is determined by the average density of states and does not change at the localization threshold. This statement is valid under assumption of a self-averaging order parameter, which can be violated in the strong localization region. Stimulating by statements on the essential increase of T_c near the Anderson transition, we carried out the systematic investigation of possible violations of self-averaging. Strong deviations from the Anderson theorem are possible due to resonances at the quasi-discrete levels, resulting in localization of the order parameter at the atomic scale. This effect is determined by the properties of individual impurities and has no direct relation to the Anderson transition. In particular, we do not see any reasons to say on "fractal superconductivity" near the localization threshold.
