Radiative Transport in a Periodic Structure

Published Web Location

No data is associated with this publication.

We derive radiative transport equations for solutions of a Schr\"odinger equation in a periodic structure with small random inhomogeneities. We use systematically the Wigner transform and the Bloch wave expansion. The streaming part of the radiative transport equations is determined entirely by the Bloch spectrum, while the scattering part by the random fluctuations.
