The effect of disorder should then be sensitive to the nature of disorder, i.e., bond disorder or potential disorder, which determines the presence or otherwise of the chiral symmetry[6, 7, 8], and whether the disorder is short-ranged or long-ranged, which controls the scattering between K and K’ points.
