The process of optical formation of dielectric waveguiding structures in transparent photo-polymerizable composition containing non-polymerizable component is considered. It is shown, that using NC does not break modes of initiating radiation self-channeling, and allows to create stable graded-index polymeric structures. We discuss results of studying of diffusion and nonlinear wave processes in liquid photopolymerizable mediums occurring under the influence of optical radiation.
