Notes on coherent backscattering from a random potential

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We consider the quantum scattering from a random potential of strength λ12 and with a support on the scale of the mean free path, which is of order λ-1. On the basis of maximally crossed diagrams, we provide a concise formula for the backscattering rate in terms of Green's function for the kinetic Boltzmann equation. We briefly discuss the extension to wave scattering.
