Paper Abstract

For a composite with spherical inclusions, made of two components, whose composition is close to the perfect index matching composition, it is shown that there are extremely optically inhomogeneous core-shell particle structures with extinction coefficients of one or more orders of magnitude smaller than a structureless inclusion with the same radius and particle composition. The effect on transparency of, the radius, particle composition, shell thickness and wavelength for this structures is discussed. It is found that these optically inhomogeneous inclusions are more wavelength selective than the homogeneous ones with the same global composition.
