Paper Abstract

We study the formation of self organized light peaks, in GaAs microcavities. By means of analytical and numerical techniques, experimentally accessible parametric domains can be found, where stable and robust CS can be addressed, shifted and brought to interaction ranges, thus realizing some basic schemes for optical information treatment. A Fourier-Newton approach is applied to gain quantitative information on CS's dynamical response to external control fields or on CS pair interaction.
