The propagation of intense light through a two-component nonlinear heterogeneous medium is considered by treating the medium as a composite medium. Introduction of dispersion and Kerr-type nonlinear terms leads to a nonlinear Schrödinger-type scattering equation. The effect of nonlinear scattering loss on soliton propagation is studied numerically. The propagation of two oppositely traveling waves is also discussed.
