Abstract:

Careful transport measurements near the superconductor-insulator transition in amorphous indium-oxide reveal a symmetry relating states in the insulator to those in the superconducting phase. I will discuss this symmetry and its consequences, and show that it is violated upon entering the strong insulator at low temperatures.
