Abstract

Cavity solitons in semiconductor amplifiers were, from the beginning of their study and observation, obtained either spontaneously or in a controlled manner by local coherent excitation. We describe two experiments that demonstrate coherent and, we believe for the first time, incoherent writing and erasure of cavity solitons in an optically pumped vertical-cavity semiconductor amplifier by short optical pulses.
