Aharonov-Bohm Effect and Disclinations in an Elastic Medium

Claudio Furtado, A. M. de M. Carvalho, C. A. de Lima Ribeiro

In this work we investigate quasiparticles in the background of defects in solids using the geometric theory of defects. We use the parallel transport matrix to study the Aharonov-Bohm effect in this background. For quasiparticles moving in this effective medium we demonstrate an effect similar to the gravitational Aharonov- Bohm effect. We analyze this effect in an elastic medium with one and N defects.

Any comments? I'll read the paper tomorrow or the next day, but I had to start the thread first because I love the abstract.
