Bright matter wave solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates

Strecker, K E; Partridge, G B; Truscott, Andrew; Hulet, Randall G


We review recent experimental and theoretical work on the creation of bright matter wave solitons in Bose–Einstein condensates. In two recent experiments, solitons are formed from Bose–Einstein condensates of 7Li by utilizing a Feshbach resonance to switch from repulsive to attractive interactions. The solitons are made to propagate in a one-dimensional potential formed by a focused laser beam. For repulsive interactions, the wavepacket undergoes dispersivewavepacket spreading, while for...[Show more]
