Abstract

We examine the effect of the intra- and interspecies scattering lengths on the dynamics of a two-component Bose-Einstein condensate, particularly focusing on the existence and stability of solitonic excitations. For each type of possible soliton pairs, stability ranges are presented in tabulated form. We also compare the numerically established stability of bright-bright, bright-dark, and dark-dark solitons with our analytical prediction and with that of Painlevé analysis of the dynamical equation. We demonstrate that tuning the interspecies scattering length away from the predicted value (keeping the intraspecies coupling fixed) breaks the stability of the soliton pairs.
