The effective permittivity dyadic of a composite material containing particulate constituent materials with one constituent having the ability to display the Pockels effect is computed, using an extended version of the strong-permittivity-fluctuation theory which takes account of both the distributional statistics of the constituent particles and their sizes. Scattering loss, thereby incorporated in the effective electromagnetic response of the homogenized composite material, is significantly affected by the application of a low-frequency (dc) electric field.
