<return to light bullet home page>
Here, two light bullets pass through each other
in a quasi-soliton fashion. However, rather than shed energy into the
surrounding volume, as they leave the collision the bullets "pinch off" to
form a third stationary state. Amazingly, the
total energy of the three final solitons almost exactly equals that of the
two incident light bullets.
