Paper Abstract

We consider a broad area vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) subject to optical injection. We experimentally investigate the spontaneous formation of a Cavity Soliton (CS) in a medium size (80μm diameter) VSCEL. CSs are generated and erased when sweeping optical injection power and proper frequency detuning between the master laser and the VCSEL is set.
