Paper Abstract

Suspensions of microparticles in either a liquid or solid host medium are known to possess very large optical nonlinearities (large (chi) 3), while also exhibiting the unusual phenomenon of enhanced backscattering. The authors have experimentally studied the relationship between these two effects using wavelength scale latex spheres in aqueous solutions. The results are presented along with a possible explanation.
