Abstract : When particles are multiply scattered by a random potential, their momentum distribution becomes isotropic on average. We study this quantum dynamics numerically and with a master equation. We show how to measure the elastic scattering time as well as characteristic isotropisation times, which permit to reconstruct the scattering phase function, even in rather strong disorder.
