Quantum transport is broadly divided into two regimes, namely Coherent and Incoherent. Coherent transport is the norm in the absence of any scattering process, where the phase of the wavefunction is preserved. Additionally, coherent transport is always an elastic process due to the absence of any scattering events in the channel region.
