The results for the stationary distribution of the backscattered reflection coefficient differ qualitatively from recently obtained analytical results and the source of this discrepancy is pointed out by studying the phase evolution of the complex reflection amplitude.

### Localization of light: Dual symmetry between absorption and amplification.

- PhysicsPhysical review. B, Condensed matter

It is shown that dual systems, which differ only in the sign of the imaginary part of $\epsilon$, have the same localization length and paradoxically, absorption and stimulated emission of radiation suppress the transmittance of the waveguide in the same way.

We consider propagation of waves in a disordered medium, extending the treatment of quasi one-dimensional systems, due to Dorokhov and to Mello et al to include absorption. In particular, we obtain…
