Paper Abstract

To obtain the effective refractive indices of three-phase coating materials, in which multiple scattering can also occur between the two different discrete phases, a multiple scattering formalism for two-phase systems is modified to include the third phase. Numerical results for different refractive indices of various arrangements are presented for a paint coating in which some of the TiO2 pigment particles are replaced by microbubbles.
