Abstract

A large number of theories have previously been developed to describe binary composite materials. One method which has included scattering is the theory of strong permittivity fluctuations (SPF). This paper presents an alternative method incorporating the effects of scattering into an effective permittivity description of a binary composite mixture of spherical inclusions in a continuous host medium. This alternative method utilizes the low volume fraction limit of the SPF theory in an iterative formulation analogous to that used to derive the asymmetric Bruggeman effective medium theory (EMT).
