Abstract: We analyze the dynamics of soliton creation in a frequency-shifted feedback ring laser with injected continuous wave seed. We show that for an active cavity the soliton buildup time may be estimated analytically. The soliton emission from the CW-pumped laser is analogous to the generation of cavitons by the resonant absorption of laser beams in inhomogeneous plasmas. We study the dynamics of optical cavitons by means of perturbation theory and numerical simulations.
