Subdiffractive solitons of Bose-Einstein condensates in time-dependent optical lattices
We study Bose-Einstein condensates trapped in periodically shaken shallow optical lattices, and demonstrate the existence of subdiffractive solitons, analogous to those encountered in periodically
Quantized nonlinear Thouless pumping.
The topological protection of wave transport, originally observed in the context of the quantum Hall effect in two-dimensional electron gases1, has been shown to apply broadly to a range of physical
Dynamical localization of gap-solitons by time periodic forces
The phenomenon of dynamical localization of matter wave solitons in optical lattices is first demonstrated and the conditions for its existence are discussed. In addition to the trapping linear
Thouless pumping in disordered photonic systems
Bulk Thouless pumping is experimentally demonstrated using arrays of evanescently coupled optical waveguides, and it is shown that this approach realizes near-full-unit-cell transport per pump cycle for a physically relevant class of localized initial system excitations.
We consider several effects of the matter wave dynamics which can be observed in Bose–Einstein condensates embedded into optical lattices. For low-density condensates, we derive approximate evolution
Bose-Einstein solitons in highly asymmetric traps
We obtain analytic solutions to the Gross-Pitaevskii equation with negative scattering length in highly asymmetric traps. We find that in these traps the Bose-Einstein condensates behave like
Topological Pumping of Photons in Nonlinear Resonator Arrays.
We show how to implement topological or Thouless pumping of interacting photons in one-dimensional nonlinear resonator arrays by simply modulating the frequency of the resonators periodically in
Breakdown of topological Thouless pumping in the strongly interacting regime
We elucidate the mechanism for instability of topological Thouless pumping in strongly interacting systems from a viewpoint of symmetry-protected topological phases. If the protecting symmetries of
Modulational instability in Bose-Einstein condensates in optical lattices
A self-consistent theory of a cylindrically shaped Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) periodically modulated by a laser beam is presented. We show, both analytically and numerically, that modulational
Topological Thouless pumping of ultracold fermions
Charge transport in a cyclically time-modulated periodic potential, also known as a topological Thouless pump, has been realized in an ultracold gas of fermionic atoms. An electron gas in a
