Abstract: Localized structures have been observed in many spatially extended systems of either biological, chemical, or physical nature. Here, we study experimentally front pinning and dissipative localized structures in a delayed optical system based on a bistable semiconductor laser with optoelectronic feedback. We observe that many of the concepts known to apply to spatially localized structures also apply in this context, with specificities related to the lack of reversibility symmetry. Numerical simulations based on purely prototypical modeling reproduce very well the experimental findings, which indicates that the results do not depend on the specific physical system under consideration, but are, on the contrary, very generic features of time delayed systems.
