Propagation of polarized electromagnetic TM waves through a nonlinear homogeneous nonmagnetic dielectric layer located between two homogeneous isotropic half-spaces is considered. The dispersion equation is derived for the propagation constants (eigenvalues) of waves in the layer. The propagation constants for nonlinear and linear media in the layer are compared. The propagation constants and fields (eigenfunctions) are calculated.
