  • Display Note: Abstract: We experimentally study the effect of enhancement of localization in weak one-dimensional random potentials. Our experimental setup is a single-mode waveguide with 100 tunable scatterers periodically inserted into the waveguide. By measuring the amplitudes of transmitted and reflected waves in the spacing between each pair of scatterers, we observe a strong decrease of the localization length when white-noise scatterers are replaced by a correlated arrangement of scatterers.
