Nonlinear dynamics of a matter-wave soliton in driven potentials
In this thesis we study, analytically and numerically, the dynamics of a bright matter-wave soliton formed from a Bose-Einstein condensate with attractive interatomic interactions, confined by a one dimensional harmonic or double-well trapping potential, and subject to weak periodic driving. Such systems have potential applications in metrology, specifically in the use of atom interferometers for high precision inertial and gravitational field sensing. The localised and dynamically robust...[Show more]
