From the viewpoint of the thermodynamics of irreversible processes it shows that the Planck’s radiation law may be substantiated without assigning thermal movement parameters to radiation and without resort to hypotheses and postulates contradicting classical physics. True quantum of radiation is meant soliton – solitary structurally stable wave modulating radiation field


Planck's law, reconsideration, radiation field, modulation, deceleration radiation, soliton as quantum, nontrivial consequences.
