Solitons are encountered in a wide range of nonlinear systems, from water channels to optical fibres. They have also been observed in Bose–Einstein condensates, but only now have such ‘ultracold solitons’ been made to live long enough for their dynamical properties to be studied in detail. 
Dark soliton in the Bose–Einstein condensates with nonlinearity and harmonic potential managements
Abstract The dynamics of dark solitons in one-dimensional Bose–Einstein condensates under the nonlinearity and harmonic potential managements is investigated. It is found that at the large particleExpand
Creation and revival of ring dark solitons in an annular Bose–Einstein condensate
We propose a protocol for the simultaneous controlled creation of multiple concentric ring dark solitons in a toroidally trapped flat Bose–Einstein condensate. The decay of these solitons into aExpand
Collision of bright vector solitons in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates
Abstract We investigate the coupled Gross–Pitaevskii equation describing the dynamics of two hyperfine states of Bose–Einstein condensates and deduce the integrability condition for the propagationExpand
Dark solitary waves in 1D Bose-Einstein condensates
We study the dynamical properties of 1D solitary waves in confined Bose-Einstein condesates of ultracold gases with repulsive interparticle interactions. We perform numerical simulations of theExpand
Interaction of dark?bright solitons in two-component Bose?Einstein condensates

Adiabatic invariant analysis of dark and dark-bright soliton stripes in two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensates
In the present work, we develop an adiabatic invariant approach for the evolution of quasi-one-dimensional (stripe) solitons embedded in a two-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate. The results of tExpand
Bright and dark solitons in a Bose-Einstein condensate

Ring dark solitons in three-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensates

Atomic dark solitons: Quantum canaries learn to fly
Dark solitons in Bose–Einstein condensates have been made to live long enough for their dynamical properties to be observed. They might serve as a sensitive probe of the rich physics at the mesoscale.
In this paper, we study on dark solitons of Bose–Einstein condensate analytically in a time-dependent harmonic trap with an arbitrary time-dependent linear potential and complex potential. It isExpand


Dark-soliton creation in Bose-Einstein condensates
It is demonstrated that stable, standing dark solitons can be created in current dilute-gas Bose-Einstein condensate experiments by the proper combination of phase and density engineering. OtherExpand
Dynamics of dark solitons in elongated Bose-Einstein condensates.
Two types of moving dark soliton textures in elongated condensates are found: nonstationary kinks and proper dark solitons, which have a flat notch region and the diagram of their dynamical stability is obtained. Expand
Creation of Dark Solitons and Vortices in Bose-Einstein Condensates
We propose and analyze a scheme to create dark solitons and vortices in Bose-Einstein condensates. This is achieved starting from a condensate in the internal state $|a〉$ and transferring the atomsExpand
Dark-bright solitons in inhomogeneous Bose-Einstein condensates.
It is shown that spatial inhomogeneity strongly affects dark-bright vector solitary wave solutions to the coupled nonlinear Schrödinger equations which describe an inhomogeneous two-species Bose-Einstein condensate, and that current technology suffices for their creation and control in ultracold trapped gases.

Watching dark solitons decay into vortex rings in a Bose-Einstein condensate.
We have created spatial dark solitons in two-component Bose-Einstein condensates in which the soliton exists in one of the condensate components and the soliton nodal plane is filled with the secondExpand
Dark solitons in bose-einstein condensates
Dark solitons in cigar-shaped Bose-Einstein condensates of ${}^{87}\mathrm{Rb}$ are created by a phase imprinting method. Coherent and dissipative dynamics of the solitons has been observed.

It is shown that solitons can exhibit viscous or radiative acceleration (antidamping), which is estimated as slow but observable on experimental time scales. Expand
Generation and interaction of solitons in Bose-Einstein Condensates
Generation, interaction, and detection of dark solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates are studied. In particular, we focus on the dynamics resulting from phase imprinting and density engineering. WeExpand
Dark-soliton dynamics in Bose-Einstein condensates at finite temperature

Experimental observation of oscillating and interacting matter wave dark solitons.
An effective particle picture is developed and confirms that the deviation of the observed oscillation frequencies from the asymptotic prediction nu(z)/sqrt 2, where nu( z) is the longitudinal trapping frequency, results from the dimensionality of the system and the soliton interactions. Expand
