Abstract: We solve the Lippmann-Schwinger equation describing elastic scattering of preformed pairs (e.g. bipolarons) off a short-range scattering center and find the two-particle transmission through a thin potential barrier. While the pair transmission is smaller than the single-electron transmission in the strong-coupling limit, it is remarkably larger in the weak coupling limit. We also calculate current-voltage characteristics of a molecule - barrier - molecule junction. They show unusual temperature and voltage behavior which are experimentally verifiable at low temperatures.
