Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

The spontaneous formation of small-area bistable lasing spots is observed at different positions within the aperture of a broad-area VCSEL with frequency-selective feedback. These spots can be switched on and off with an incoherent injected field. They are interpreted as spatial dissipative solitons. Approaches to model these devices are presented and first results on the occurrence of localization are reported.
