By the transfer matrix approach we numerically study the electromagnetic properties (narrow peak positions) of the transmission spectra for microspheres coated by a multilayered stack with the generalized Cantor structure (fractal). As opposed to the standard Cantor system with removed γ/3 [γ = 1] section we consider here the solid stack with Si/SiO 2 layers at general γ value. In such a solid composition the SiO 2 layers replace the empty Cantor sections and the parameter γ acquires meaning of

At successive generations the central layers (in blocks of the spherical stack) acquire a progressive decreased width that leads to generation of the radially inhomogeneous defects. We show that the wave phase interference in such a fractal pattern leads to formation of very narrow electromagnetic transmittance resonances that can be used in modern optoelectronics.
