Interacting laser and Bose-Einstein-condensate atomic beams: Mutual guiding structures
Journal article, 2010

A basic set of equations describing the interaction of a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC) with a laser field is derived based on a semiclassical model and applied to the problem of mutual guiding of laser and BEC atomic beams. Within this framework we have studied stationary spatially localized solutions of the nonlinear system which describe possible laser and BEC atomic beam guiding and have shown their stability as well. It is also shown that a self-guiding effect can be realized through both single-and multiple-scaled structures of a BEC atomic and a laser beam.
