Let $H$ be a Schrödinger type operator with long-range perturbation. We study the wave front set of the distribution kernel of $(H-\lambda\mp i0)^{-1}$, where $\lambda$ is in the absolutely continous spectrumof $H$. The result is a refinement of the microlocal resolvent estimate of Isozaki-Kitada. We prove the result for a class of pseudodifferential operators on manifolds so that they apply to discrete Schrödinger operators and higher order operators on the Euclidean space. The proof relies on propagation estimates, whereas the original proof of Isozaki-Kitada relies on a construction of parametrices.

Keywords: Schrödinger operators, scattering theory, resolvent estimates.
