The spatial distribution and amplitude characteristics of the absorbed power inside multilayer particle-microcapsules consisting of a liquid core and one or more polymer shells when changing the thickness and refractive index of the external shell was studied in detail. The position of the field localization when varying these parameters was defined. This is important for the solution of practical tasks associated with opening the microcapsule shells in appropriate spatial areas.
