Abstract

We study theoretically the extinction of collimated light in random systems of highly scattering particles embedded in nonabsorbing media. We aim to provide rough guidelines on the behavior of the extinction coefficient in the so-called dependent-scattering regime. We base our analysis on Keller’s second order perturbative approximation to the effective propagation constant. To gain physical insight, we also analyze a simple model based on the physical notion that particles in a dense system scatter light in an effective medium.
