In what order should I input multiple dielectric materials?

When using the Concentric Ellipsoids function and 2 different dielectric materials (for the 2 layers), does "Composition 1" refer to the composition of the inner ellipsoid or the outer layer?

    The inner core is material 1. The shell (layer between the two ellipsoids) is material 2. This can be easily verified by setting the dielectric function of material 2 to that of air and examining the resulting spectrum. 

    Please cite the tool in any published work. Best of luck,

      Can the shapefile numbering also be useful in identifying composition for the layers? For example, for the simulations I've been running involving two dielectrics for a nanoshell composed of a shell and a core, there are two numbers in the shapefile that are generated which are assigned to coordinates of dipoles based on  where they are - in the core and shell.  Looking at the coordinates and the numbering - I concluded that the shell should be assigned the composition 1 dielectric while the the core the composition 2 dielectric. Let me know if this is the case.
