Abstract

The luminescence of dispersed media during light generation in spherical microresonators has been investigated theoretically. The effect that is predicted for the first time to our knowledge is a drastic increase of the dispersed-medium luminescence intensity in the case of an inverted population of the metastable-molecule energy levels.
