Inelastic Scattering Time for Conductance Fluctuations

  title={Inelastic Scattering Time for Conductance Fluctuations},
  author={Igor L. Aleiner and Ya. M. Blanter},
  journal={Physical Review B},
We revisit the problem of inelastic times governing the temperature behavior of the weak localization correction and mesoscopic fluctuations in one- and two-dimensional systems. It is shown that, for dephasing by the electron electron interaction, not only are those times identical but the scaling functions are also the same.
