Cavity Solitons (CS) are ideal candidates for the implementation of information processes such as delay lines and optical memories in broad area optoelectronic devices. All-optical delay lines in vertical cavity surface emitting lasers operated below threshold have recently been demonstrated [1]. In such devices, CS are written by an input pulsed signal, move transversally following phase gradients, and are read at the end of the line to reconstruct the now delayed original signal. We investigate here the locking and merging properties of CS in a nonlinear Kerr cavity when the holding beam displays a spatially modulated phase.
