By introducing an intracavity Doppler shift in a resonator with a highly dispersive nonlinear medium, a train of optical pulses is generated whose features are related to the slow/fast-light response of the medium. The cavity transmission is asymmetric and the pulse shape is modified differently depending on the direction of the Doppler shift, hence, on the sign of the group delay provided by the dispersive process.
