Abstract

Many dissipative optical systems support patterns. Dissipative solitons are generally found where a pattern coexists with a stable unpatterned state. We consider such phenomena in driven optical cavities containing a nonlinear medium (cavity solitons) and rather similar phenomena (feedback solitons) where a
driven nonlinear optical medium is in front of a single feedback mirror. The history, theory, experimental status, and potential application of such solitons is reviewed.
