Dark ring cavity solitons and stable droplets in models of nonlinear optical cavities

Not Accessible

Spatially localized structures in nonlinear optical cavities, including Kerr resonators, optical parametric oscillators, saturable media and second harmonic generation, have attracted a large amount of attention in the last years. In particular, the existence of localized structures (LS) in nonlinear optical cavities have been recently shown [1, 2, 3]. These narrow soliton-like structures exist for a quite broad range of values of the pump for which there is bistability between two equivalent homogeneous solutions. Here we show the existence of a novel kind of stable localized structures, the stable droplets (SD) which have a much larger size and which are in fact large stable circular domain walls connecting the two homogeneous solutions.
