Abstract

Utilizing a rotational actuator with different paddle configurations in the Nonlinear Wave Lab at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, the velocity and vorticity fields of vortex solitons are obtained. Using a powerful HD camera for a wide range of paddles and angular velocities, formation of ring vortices that travel in the water tank will be analyzed. The vortex ring propagation is useful for sending information across an optical fiber for long distances without the need for amplification. Since such fibers capable of sending information for very long distances don’t exist yet, we will experiment with the propagation of spatiotemporal structures along the water tank. As a partial differential equation (PDE) model we will use the complex cubic-quintic Ginzburg-Landau Equation (CCQGLE), which for particular parameters can be simplified to a fifth order nonlinear Schrodinger equation.
