Temporal cavity solitons are short pulses observed in periodic time traces of the electric field envelope in active and passive optical cavities. They sit on a stable background so that their trajectory comes close to a stable CW solution between the pulses. A common approach to predict a nd study these solitons theoretically is based on the use of Ginzburg-Landau-type partial differential equations, which, however, cannot adequately describe the dynamics of many realistic laser systems. Here for the first time we demonstrate formation of temporal cavity soliton solutions in a time-delay model of a ring semiconductor cavity with coherent optical injection, operating in anomalous dispersion regime, and perform bifurcation analysis of these solutions.
