Core-shell nanosized particles are intensively studied because of their potential for many novel applications. Their optical properties show the presence of resonances at certain wavelengths. Herein, we present a numeric analysis of multilayer spherical particles, randomly dispersed in a dielectric host matrix. Each particle is assumed to consist of four concentric spheres. The overall optical response of the composite films is investigated.
