Tubular laser solitons.

Opt Lett 2021 Aug;46(16):4076-4079

We analyze, to the best of our knowledge, a new type of topological optical solitons in lasers with fast saturable absorption, which is intermediate between 2D and 3D ones. Being generated by 2D laser solitons, such 3D dissipative solitons in a laser cavity of length have a number of vortex lines, which are straight for under-critical values and spiral for larger . For supercritical , a vortex with multiple topological charges >1 in generating 2D solitons transforms into separate vortex lines. Read More

Multiple double-pole bright-bright and bright-dark solitons and energy-exchanging collision in the M-component nonlinear Schrödinger equations.

Phys Rev E 2021 Jun;103(6-1):062214

Institute for Advanced Study, Shenzhen University, Shenzhen, Guangdong 518060, People's Republic of China.

Multiple double-pole bright-bright and bright-dark soliton solutions for the multicomponent nonlinear Schrödinger (MCNLS) system comprising three types of nonlinearities, namely, focusing, defocusing, and mixed (focusing-defocusing) nonlinearities, arising in different physical settings are constructed. An interesting type of energy-exchanging phenomenon during collision of these double-pole solitons is unraveled. To explore the objectives, we consider the general solutions of a set of generalized MCNLS equations and by taking the long-wavelength limit with proper parameter choices of single-pole bright-bright and bright-dark soliton pairs, the multiple double-pole bright-bright and bright-dark soliton solutions are constructed in terms of determinants.

Chaos 2021 Jun;31(6):063122

International Collaborative Laboratory of 2D Materials for Optoelectronics Science and Technology, Key Laboratory of Optoelectronic Devices and Systems of Ministry of Education and Guangdong Province, College of Microscale Optoelectronics, Shenzhen University, Shenzhen 518060, China.

As a universal phenomenon in nonlinear optical systems, the soliton pulsating behavior is useful to achieve high pulse energy and can further enrich the complex soliton dynamics. To the best of our knowledge, herein we have demonstrated the observation of multiple-soliton pulsations in an L-band mode-locked fiber laser based on a nonlinear amplifying loop mirror with anomalous dispersion for the first time. Based on the dispersive Fourier transform method, we find that the pulsations in the multi-soliton regime are accompanied with the pulse width breathing and spectrum oscillation. Read More

Orbital-angular-momentum-resolved diagnostics for tracking internal phase evolution in multi-bound solitons.

Opt Express 2021 May;29(11):16686-16694

The generation of multi-bound solitons is a fascinating subject of investigation in many conservative and dissipative systems, such as photonics, fluid mechanics, Bose-Einstein condensates, and so on. In this study, we demonstrate the successful extraction of phase dynamics between solitons in bound multiple solitons with up to seven constituents in a mode-locked Er laser system. By mapping the internal phase motions of multi-bound solitons to the spatial phase movement of cylindrical vector beams using orbital angular momentum (OAM)-based diagnostics, different categories of internal pulsations are revealed.

Multiple Self-Organized Phases and Spatial Solitons in Cold Atoms Mediated by Optical Feedback.

Phys Rev Lett 2021 May;126(20):203201

SUPA and Department of Physics, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow G4 0NG, Scotland, United Kingdom.

We study the transverse self-structuring of cold atomic clouds with effective atomic interactions mediated by a coherent driving beam retroreflected by means of a single mirror. The resulting self-structuring due to optomechanical forces is much richer than that of an effective-Kerr medium, displaying hexagonal, stripe and honeycomb phases depending on the interaction strength parametrized by the linear susceptibility. Phase domains are described by Ginzburg-Landau amplitude equations with real coefficients. Read More

Synthesis and dissociation of soliton molecules in parallel optical-soliton reactors.

Light Sci Appl 2021 Jun 7;10(1):120. Epub 2021 Jun 7.

Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light Staudtstrasse 2, 91058, Erlangen, Germany.

Mode-locked lasers have been widely used to explore interactions between optical solitons, including bound-soliton states that may be regarded as "photonic molecules". Conventional mode-locked lasers normally, however, host at most only a few solitons, which means that stochastic behaviours involving large numbers of solitons cannot easily be studied under controlled experimental conditions. Here we report the use of an optoacoustically mode-locked fibre laser to create hundreds of temporal traps or "reactors" in parallel, within each of which multiple solitons can be isolated and controlled both globally and individually using all-optical methods.

Real-time observation of pulsating period-doubled vector solitons in a passively mode-locked fiber laser.

Opt Express 2021 Apr;29(9):14101-14111

Dissipative solitons (DSs) are self-organized localized structures in non-conservative systems, which require a continuous energy exchange with external sources. In addition to parameter-invariant stationary DSs, there exists a variety of dynamical ones manifesting breathing behaviors. Such intriguing phenomena, termed as soliton pulsations, have been widely studied in recent years under the impetus of advances in real-time spectroscopy. Read More

Chaos Solitons Fractals 2021 May 20;146:110885. Epub 2021 Mar 20.

Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Energy and Natural Resources, Sunyani, Ghana.

Optimal economic evaluation is pivotal in prioritising the implementation of non-pharmaceutical and pharmaceutical interventions in the control of diseases. Governments, decision-makers and policy-makers broadly need information about the effectiveness of a control intervention concerning its cost-benefit to evaluate whether a control intervention offers the best value for money. The outbreak of COVID-19 in December 2019, and the eventual spread to other parts of the world, have pushed governments and health authorities to take drastic socioeconomic, sociocultural and sociopolitical measures to curb the spread of the virus, SARS-CoV-2.

Localized gap modes of coherently trapped atoms in an optical lattice.

Opt Express 2021 Feb;29(3):3011-3025

We theoretically investigate one-dimensional localized gap modes in a coherent atomic gas where an optical lattice is formed by a pair of counterpropagating far-detuned Stark laser fields. The atomic ensembles under study emerge as Λ-type three-level configuration accompanying the effect of electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). Based on Maxwell-Bloch equations and the multiple scales method, we derive a nonlinear equation governing the spatial-temporal evolution of the probe-field envelope. Read More

Observation of Universal Quench Dynamics and Townes Soliton Formation from Modulational Instability in Two-Dimensional Bose Gases.

Phys Rev Lett 2020 Dec;125(25):250401

Department of Physics and Astronomy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907, USA.

We experimentally study universal nonequilibrium dynamics of two-dimensional atomic Bose gases quenched from repulsive to attractive interactions. We observe the manifestation of modulational instability that, instead of causing collapse, fragments a large two-dimensional superfluid into multiple wave packets universally around a threshold atom number necessary for the formation of Townes solitons. We confirm that the density distributions of quench-induced solitary waves are in excellent agreement with the stationary Townes profiles. Read More

Intrinsical localization of both topological (anti-kink) envelope and gray (black) gap solitons of the condensed bosons in deep optical lattices.

Chaos 2020 Dec;30(12):123133

Beijing National Laboratory for Condensed Matter Physics, Institute of Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100080, China.

By developing quasi-discrete multiple-scale method combined with tight-binding approximation, a novel quadratic Riccati differential equation is first derived for the soliton dynamics of the condensed bosons trapped in the optical lattices. For a lack of exact solutions, the trial solutions of the Riccati equation have been analytically explored for the condensed bosons with various scattering length a. When the lattice depth is rather shallow, the results of sub-fundamental gap solitons are in qualitative agreement with the experimental observation. Read More

The origin of spin wave pulse-induced domain wall inertia.

J Phys Condens Matter 2020 Sep 1;32(47):475803. Epub 2020 Sep 1.

School of Physical Science and Technology, Yangzhou University, Yangzhou 225002, People's Republic of China. Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Seoul National University, Seoul 08826, Republic of Korea.

The fundamental problem of domain wall (DW) inertia-the property that gives to inertial behaviors remains unclear in the physics of magnetic solitons. To understand its nature as well as to achieve accurate DW positioning and efficient manipulation of domain wall motion (DWM), spin wave (SW) pulse-induced DW transient effect is studied both numerically and theoretically in a magnetic nanostrip. It is shown for the first time that there occurs inevitable deceleration/automotion after SW pulse, which indicates nonzero DW inertia. Read More

A quantitative framework for exploring exit strategies from the COVID-19 lockdown.

Chaos Solitons Fractals 2020 Nov 24;140:110244. Epub 2020 Aug 24.

Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003-4515, USA.

Following the highly restrictive measures adopted by many countries for combating the current pandemic, the number of individuals infected by SARS-CoV-2 and the associated number of deaths steadily decreased. This fact, together with the impossibility of maintaining the lockdown indefinitely, raises the crucial question of whether it is possible to design an exit strategy based on quantitative analysis. Guided by rigorous mathematical results, we show that this is indeed possible: we present a robust numerical algorithm which can compute the cumulative number of deaths that will occur as a result of increasing the number of contacts by a given multiple, using as input only the most reliable of all data available during the lockdown, namely the cumulative number of deaths.

Soliton formation and stability under the interplay between parity-time-symmetric generalized Scarf-II potentials and Kerr nonlinearity.

Phys Rev E 2020 Jul;102(1-1):012216

Department of Theoretical Physics, Horia Hulubei National Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, Bucharest-Magurele, RO-077125, Romania.

We present an alternative type of parity-time (PT)-symmetric generalized Scarf-II potentials, which makes possible for non-Hermitian Hamiltonians in the classical linear Schrödinger system to possess fully real spectra with unique features such as the multiple PT-symmetric breaking behaviors and to support one-dimensional (1D) stable PT-symmetric solitons of power-law waveform, namely power-law solitons, in focusing Kerr-type nonlinear media. Moreover, PT-symmetric high-order solitons are also derived numerically in 1D and 2D settings. Around the exactly obtained nonlinear propagation constants, families of 1D and 2D localized nonlinear modes are also found numerically. Read More

Control of topology of two-dimensional solitons in a laser with saturable absorption by means of a coherent holding radiation.

Opt Lett 2020 Jun;45(12):3284-3287

We propose a simple method to control the topology of laser vortex solitons and their complexes in a wide-aperture laser with saturable absorption by means of weak coherent holding radiation. The holding radiation acting on initial "free" vortex solitons induces the appearance of new peripheral vortices and the splitting of multiple central vortices, as well as reconfiguration of energy flow topology. A wide variety of these stable vortex structures makes the scheme promising for topologically protected information processing. Read More
