A brief review of quantum interference in small conductors is followed by a discussion of quantum interference in ballistic conductors. The ballistic conductors are characterized by conservation of the momentum vector and this leads to a simple model for the details of the conductance of the sys­tem. In contrast, for diffusive conductors one can only predict the statistical behavior of the interference contributions to the conductance. The response of the ballistic interferometers is governed by semiclassical physics of the electron momentum states (i.e. the modes) in the quantum conductor. Un­der circumstances of reduced backscattering of the modes, the interference pattern appears to imitate that from a simple optical interferometer. New results from ballistic interferometers are reviewed briefly.
