BEC soliton interacting with thermal atoms BEC solitons in a thermal cloud are predicted to experience  friction and diffusive motion. Read recent PRL article!

BEC bright solitons may be quantum reflected from an attractive potential well. Read recent EPL article!

Exerimentally observed shells and simulations

Collisions of solitons and vortex rings in BECs produce complex hybrid structures! Read on ...
