Abstract

We investigate the density of states (DOS) near the Fermi energy of one-dimensional spin-polarized electron systems in the quantum regime where the localization length is comparable to or larger than the interparticle distance. The Wigner lattice gap of such a system, in the presence of weak disorder, can occur precisely at the Fermi energy, coinciding with the Coulomb gap in position. The interplay between the two is investigated by treating the long-range Coulomb interaction and the random disorder potential in a self-consistent Hartree-Fock approximation. The DOS near the Fermi energy is found to be well described by a power law, the exponent of which decreases with increasing disorder strength.
