A model treatment of a 1D ring-shaped wire, in which noninteracting electrons experience an induced emf and weak elastic scattering, reveals the occurrence of self-induced randomization of phases in the electronic wave functions. This novel phenomenon leads to resistive behavior in spite of the inherent time reversibility of the system.
