Краткий обзор статьи: G. Galanti and M .Roncadelli recently made public some comments on the article by D. Wouters and P. Brun about irregularities induced by photon mixing to axion-like particles in astrophysical media [Phys. Rev. D86, 043005 (2012)]. They claim in particular to have found some mistakes in the article. This note is a response to their comments, we refute their arguments and show that the results presented in the article are correct. It turns out most of the misunderstandings come from the definition of the beam initial state, some clarifications about which are given here.
