Abstract

The scattering theory of transport has to be applied with care in a diffuse environment. Here, we discuss how the scattering matrices of heterointerfaces can be used to compute interface resistances of dirty magnetic multilayers. First-principles calculations of these interface resistances agree well with experiments in the current perpendicular to the interface plane configuration.
