The final stage of the evolution of a 3D Langmuir cavity is studied. The final dimensions of the cavity are found to be significant in comparison with those in the 2D case. The rf field is found to be at a high level. These results are evidence that nonlinear Landau damping plays an important role in the dissipation of wave energy.
