Title: Nonlinear atom optics with bright matter-wave soliton trains

Abstract

Bright-soliton train creation and evolution in a Bose-Einstein condensate is simulated numerically using the experimental conditions of K. E. Strecker et al. [Nature 417, 150 (2002)] as a starting point. We identify the controlling factors that dictate soliton number, phase imprinting, and stability. Reliable production of multiple phase-engineered condensed-matter pulses can have practical applications to future nonlinear atom optics experiments, which we illustrate with an example of colinear scattering between repulsive solitons.
