Paper Abstract

Electromagnetic field instability in nonabsorbing dielectric nonhomogeneity is considered to be one of possible mechanisms of field localization and abrupt amplitude increasing in transparent dielectric materials. Instability threshold estimates and some parametric dependences of the threshold amplitude are obtained making use of model of field instability in dielectric sphere. It is discussed using of the model for analysis of optical breakdown processes in transparent media.
