Propagation of Light in Disordered Semiconductor Materials
The analogy between the propagation of electron waves and classical waves has led to a revival in the research of the transport of light in disordered scattering systems . The first indications of the role of interference in multiple scattering has been indicated in experiments on enhanced backscattering in the late 1980’s . Over the past decade many studies have been performed to characterize and understand this intricate interplay of scattering and interference . The improved understanding of the optical systems stimulated the studies of the propagation of waves in disordered systems in general and applications in e.g. the field of medical imaging .
