Mishchenko, M.I., and J.M. Dlugach, 1992: The amplitude of the opposition effect due to weak localization of photons in discrete random media. Astrophys. Space Sci., 189, 151-154, doi:10.1007/BF00642962.

Weak localization of photons in discrete disordered media is considered as a possible physical mechanism of the opposition effect of some atmosphereless bodies. The amplitude of the opposition effect is calculated by using the rigorous vector multiple-scattering theory and scalar approximation. It is shown that the scalar approximation can significantly overestimate the amplitude of the opposition effect. Thus, this approximation should not be used in interpreting the observational data, and some previous results obtained with this approximation may require substantial revision.
