Paper Abstract

We present results of direct computer simulations of formation of laser bullets--3D localized (soliton-like) structures of coherent radiation in media with saturable optical absorption and amplification and frequency dispersion. Stable stationary symmetric and pulsing asymmetric laser bullets are demonstrated. Superstability of these dissipative solitons and absence of drift of their main parameters give good reason to believe that these structures are promising for applications in the field of optical information processing.
