Control of cavity solitons and dynamical states in a monolithic vertical cavity laser with saturable absorber

We present recent experimental results on the control and dynamics of cavity solitons in a monolithic, vertical cavity surface emitting laser with saturable absorber. On one hand, the fast and independent manipulation of two laser cavity solitons is achieved and a flip-flop operation is demonstrated with a single control-beam. On the other hand, a pulsing localized structure is presented and we demonstrate the control of a pulsing multispot structure that we can switch-on and off. These results are promising in view of the obtainment of a pulsed and monolithic cavity soliton laser.
