Abstract
We formed composite materials with geometries approximating that of th e Bruggeman model by filling the pores of a porous glass with opticall y nonlinear fluids spanning a range of linear refractive indices. The effective linear refractive indices of the composites were measured wi th a Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The effective nonlinear refractive i ndices were determined by the Z-scan method. In both cases good betwee n the experimental data and theoretical predictions was found. (C) 199 7 Optical Society of America.
