Probing Anderson localization of light via decay rate statistics

Abstract : We have studied the distribution of resonant widths $P (\Gamma)$ in one-, two- and three dimensional multiple light scattering systems. $P (\Gamma)$ should follow a universal power law $P (\Gamma) \sim \Gamma^{-1}$ in the localized regime as confirmed by extensive numerical calculations. This behavior can be interpreted as an unambiguous signature of exponential Anderson localization of light in open systems.
