Abstract: We solve the Lippmann-Schwinger equation describing one-dimensional 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 behaviors which are experimentally verifiable at low temperatures in bulk and nanoscale molecular conductors.
