We interpret a new kind of localization in a finite one-dimensional tight-binding model under a weak applied electric field. This phenomenon is quite general and manifests itself in a more than exponential decreasing behaviour of the chain transmittivity. We provide analytic expressions for the transmittivity and confirm the theoretical results by transfer matrix numerical calculations. We show that this phenomenon is present in ordered as well as in aperiodic (incommensurate and pseudorandom systems) irrespective of the number of allowed bands.
