Spontaneous generation and splitting of laser cavity solitons pinned by defects

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book


Laser cavity solitons (LCS) are transverse, nonlinear, self-localized and dissipative states that possess both translational and phase invariance and can be used in storage and processing of optical information. LCS have been observed in vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSEL) with frequency-selective-feedback [1] where they appear spontaneously at given positions (defects) when increasing the VCSEL injection current [2].
