Simple and Efficient Generation of Gap Solitons in Bose-Einstein Condensates

Matuszewski, Michal; Trippenbach, Marek; Kivshar, Yuri; Krolikowski, Wieslaw


We suggest an efficient method for generating matter-wave gap solitons in a repulsive Bose-Einstein condensate, when the gap soliton is formed from a condensate cloud in a harmonic trap after turning on a one-dimensional optical lattice. We demonstrate numerically that this approach does not require preparing the initial atomic wave packet in a specific state corresponding to the edge of the Brillouin zone of the spectrum, and losses that occur during the soliton generation process can be...[Show more]
