Absolute continuity of the spectrum of a Schrödinger operator with a potential which is periodic in some directions and decays in others

Doc. Math., J. DMV 9, 107-121 (2004)

Summary

Summary: We prove that the spectrum of a Schrödinger operator with a potential which is periodic in certain directions and super-exponentially decaying in the others is purely absolutely continuous. Therefore, we reduce the operator using the Bloch-Floquet-Gelfand transform in the periodic variables, and show that, except for at most a set of quasi-momenta of measure zero, the reduced operators satisfies a limiting absorption principle.
