Multihump soliton-like structures in interactions of lasers and Bose-Einstein condensates
Journal article, 2011

An investigation is made of multihump and periodic solutions of the semiclassical coupled equations describing laser radiation copropagating with a Bose-Einstein condensate. Solutions reminiscent of optical vector solitons have been found and have been used to gain understanding of the dynamics observed in the numerical simulations, in particular to shed light on the phenomenon of jet emission from a condensate interacting with a laser.
