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  where they appear spontaneously at given positions (defects) when increasing the VCSEL injection current .
