Bright matter-wave solitons formation dynamics and quantum reflection

We study the dynamics of bright matter-wave solitons created from attractively interacting $^{85}$Rb Bose-Einstein condensates.

Atom-Optical Quantum Accelerator Modes

These are caused through a quantum-mechanical resonance, and characterized using an effective classical framework.

Relative Phase and Coherence in Bright Matter-Wave Solitons

We are investigating the theoretical and quantum-mechanical underpinnings of bright solitons in atomic Bose-Einstein condensates.
