On demand generation of single bright atomic solitons has been demonstrated using ultracold Li atoms. These mesoscopic quantum bound states occur in one dimensional systems where attractive forces between particles balances dispersive and diffractive effects. Remarkably, these complicated objects of N ≈ 100 atoms behave as a single quasiparticle with large effective mass and lifetimes of more than 6 seconds. I present details on our method of single soliton production as well as experiments… CONTINUE READING
