We have reexamined the conditions for the enhancement of electron-positron pair photoproduction cross-section to occur due to the type-B coherent effect. Simple formulae to characterize the position and the bandwidth of the enhancement for the hard collimated pairs are derived. We also examined the effect of interference among the atomic strings and found that, in some cases it is almost identical to a random phase approximation while in other cases, phenomena analogous to the extinction law in X-ray diffraction may occur.
