Abstract: In this paper, we review the recent activity of our group on the study of disorder effects on systems displaying phase coherence. These studies have focused on both the electronic transport through mesoscopic metallic spin glasses, and cold atomic gases trapped in a disordered potential.

Keywords: weak localisation; spin glass wires; cold atomic gases; disorder effects; phase coherence; electronic transport; mesoscopic metallic spin glasses; nanotechnology.
