Weak Localization in Media with Refractive-Index Gradient: the Diffusion Approximation

  • Ya. A. IlyushinEmail author

We consider the effect of weak localization of waves in the scattering medium with regular refractive-index gradient. The solution within the diffusion approximation of the radiative transfer theory is obtained. Reasonable qualitative agreement of the approximate solution with the results of numerical simulation is shown.
