Paper Abstract

Optical cavities, including semiconductor microresonators, are predicted to support stable 2D cavity solitons. The cavity must contain a nonlinear material, but that material need not itself support solitons. The nature and properties of such cavity solitons, including optical control and manipulation, are discussed and novel array processing schemes taking advantage of their unique features are proposed.
