Paper Abstract

A problem of optical effects in aerosol particles is considered in the tasks of atmospheric femtosecond optics. Based on numerical solution of a problem on diffraction of plane wave of femtosecond duration by a weekly absorbing spherical particle, the spatial-temporal structure of the internal light field is studied. An existence of a multi-mode exciting regime of whispering galler modes is found. It is shown that a decrease of this factor at transition from the monochromatic wave to the femtosecond pulse results in significant decrease of intense internal field in the points of its maxima. A possibility to generate stimulated radiation in a particle at the Stokes frequencies and the third harmonics frequencies is also discussed. The thresholds of nonlinear optical effects under the condition of femtosecond laser pulse action on a dielectric microsphere are considered.
