  • localized structures, bistability, photonic band gap




We consider a passive nonlinear optical cavity containing a photonic crystal inside it. The cavity is driven by a superposition of the two coherent beams forming a periodically modulated pump. Using a coupled mode reduction and direct numerical modeling of the full system we demonstrate existence of resting and moving transversely localized structures of light in this system.
