<return to light bullet home page>
In this simulation, two light bullets are initially separated
in space but have opposing velocities in the moving reference
frame such that they collide. (In the laboratory reference frame, the
right-most light bullet is travelling faster than the left-most bullet,
the collision ocurring when it overtakes the slower pulse.) The light
bullets survive the nonlinear collision although a fraction of the energy
is dissipated into the surrounding volume; this released radiation is not evident
in the images due to the colour cutoff mentioned earlier.
