A theory of photophysical burning of spectral holes in an inhomogeneously broadened light absorption profile of spherical quantum dots under vibrational resonance conditions is developed. The energy spectrum and the eigenfunctions of polaron-like excitations that arise in a quantum dot when the energy of an optical phonon is close to the energy gap between some pair of levels of the quantum dot electron subsystem are found by the method of canonical transformations. Expressions describing the difference light absorption spectra of quantum dots in the regimes of strong and weak confinement are obtained within a simple kinetic model.
