Abstract

Experimental results of a new type of localized state generated in an optical system consisting of a liquid-crystal spatial light modulator with optical feedback are demonstrated. The localized state is triggered at a position that depends on the size of a control beam because its formation depends on the fraction of high-spatial-frequency components in the feedback light that passes through a low-cut spatial-frequency filter. This novel size-dependent switching property is useful for erasing individual target localized states.
