Abstract: The correspondence between long-delayed systems and one-dimensional spatially extended media enables a direct interpretation of purely temporal phenomena in terms of spatio-temporal patterns. On the basis of this result, we provide the evidence of a characteristic spatio-temporal dynamics -coarsening- in a long-delayed bistable system. Nucleation, propagation and annihilation of fronts, leading eventually to a single phase, are observed in an experiment based on a laser with opto-electronic feedback. A numerical and analytical study of a general phenomenological model is also performed and compared with the experimental findings.
