Abstract

Spatially self-localized states have been found in a model of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers with frequency-selective optical feedback. The structures obtained differ from most known dissipative solitons in optics in that they are localized traveling waves. The results suggest a route to realization of a cavity soliton laser using standard semiconductor laser designs.
