From a microscopic model describing the detection process for matter waves, we derive a quantum theory of matter wave detection. We use perturbation theory to calculate the short‐time approximation to the detection rate of matter waves and a Langevin‐type calculation to obtain the long‐time correction. In both instances we show that the detection rate can be related to the flux of the matter waves through a detector medium.
