Accelerating and abruptly autofocusing matter waves

Phys. Rev. A   87   043637 (2013) N. K. Efremidis, V. Paltoglou, and W. von Klitzing http://link.aps.org/doi/10.1103/PhysRevA.87.043637 Abstract: We predict that classes of coherent matter waves can self-accelerate without the presence of an external potential. Such Bose-Einstein condensates can … Continue reading
