Abstract:The existence and stability properties of localized structures in nonlinear optical cavities with slightly non-equivalent homogeneous solutions and displaying a modulational instability of flat fronts are investigated. We present a new type of stable localized structures in the regime of formation of labyrinthine patterns based on the balance between the curvature and the asymmetry effects.
