Abstract :

We will discuss two mechanisms of momentum relaxation in holography
which preserve homogeneity in the bulk geometry. Studying the condensation
of a complex scalar field on these black hole solutions we will describe
superconductivity on the dual theory. We will then compute the optical conductivity
of the so constructed black holes and compare with other models in the literature.
