Abstract
The study of steady states for picosecond dissipative optical solitons, appearing in single-mode semiconductor laser structures multilayered in a direction of passing those pulses, is developed. Such solitons are shaped due to resculpturing some external optical pulses because of the passive mode-locking process in traveling-wave regime. The relations between the pulse parameters and structure properties are chosen in such a way that the process is incoherent in behavior and provides the phase decay of incoming pulses. The analysis performed demonstrates that both dark and bright optical solitons can be supported by the structures with a quasi-linear gain and a fast relaxing saturable absorption.
