Abstract

In this paper we have minimized the energy of a two dimensional Coulomb glass system at low disorder, using Monte Carlo simulation. The Monte Carlo simulation is done by two methods namely annealing and quenching. The quenching method has been used for two dimensional and three dimensional Coulomb glass system at large disorders with great success. Here we show that at low disorders annealing gives far better energy minimization then quenching. We have carried out an analysis of the domains obtained via two methods to explain our results. We found that the minimum energy state achieved by annealing the system had two large domains, but by quenching it the system breaks into large number of small domains.
