Paper Abstract

The possibility of realization of a spherically symmetric structure of electromagnetic field in a homogeneous isotropic medium is analyzed. The existence of this spherical structure is determined by a radial-gradient distribution of the nonlinear refractive index, which acts as a spherical microcavity induced in the nonlinear medium. Mechanisms and conditions of self-organization of the spherically symmetric structural resonance are discussed on a basis of the nonlinear-optical and quantum-mechanical approaches. Dynamics and stability of the structural resonance in the nonlinear medium are considered.
