We investigate optical field dynamics in lasers cavities dominated by a saturable absorber. We found that for a specific parameter range the solitary wave-type solutions exist and can be expressed in analytic form, including a new gray-pulse solution. Stability of these solitary waves is discussed and numerically examined.
