The recently discovered ultralow-threshold nonlinear refraction of low-intensity laser radiation in dielectric nanostructures has an atypical dependence on radiation intensity in the pulsed and continuous modes. We first carry out quantitative measurements of the dependence of the nonlinear response of liquid dielectric nanostructures on the low-intensity radiation and then devise a theoretical explanation. The theory suggests that the nonlinearity is of photoinduced nature instead of a thermal one and depends directly on the nanoparticles electronic structure and the relationship between permittivities of dielectric matrix and nanoparticles.
