Abstract

We study the effective index of random media composed of two-layered spheres by using the energy-density coherent potential approximation method. As expected from the Ewald–Oseen extinction theorem, in the long-wavelength limit, the optical properties of a random medium composed of two-layered spheres are identical to those of a random medium composed of the corresponding pure spheres, while in the Mie-scattering region, the single-scattering resonances lead to an overall shift of the effective refractive index with the modified volume fraction.
