Spatial correlations of disorder in low-dimensional condensed matter result in new and sometimes not well understood phenomena. Thus, the widely admitted one-parameter scaling theory cannot account for localization properties of quasi-particles in disorder-correlated systems. Even more exotic transport and optical properties arise, when disorder is long-range correlated without spatial characteristic length (scale-free disorder). In this talk, I will focus on the dynamics of an electron subjected to an applied electric field as well as on the linear optical response of Frenkel excitons in molecular systems with scale-free disorder. In particular, I will show that electrons can undergo Bloch oscillations between mobility edges and that the optical spectrum presents a new absorption line located inside the band. Both features are unique fingerprints of the scale-free disorder.
