Abstract : The interplay of classical chaotic properties and of quantum coherence effects is crucially important in mesoscopic physics, as it gives rise to transport fluctuations and quantum localization. We have studied both effects in different models. The results we have obtained are potentially relevant to all fields of Quantum Chaology, with possible experimental applications in the domains of Atomic Physics, Mesoscopic Physics, and Classical wave propagation (e.g. acoustic, microwave and optical resonators.
