Abstract:

We investigate the existence of envelope soliton solutions in collisionless quantum plasmas, using the quantum-corrected Zakharov equations in the kinetic case, which describes the interaction between high frequency Langmuir waves and low frequency plasma density variations. We show the role played by quantum effects in the nonlinearity/dispersion balance leading to the formation of soliton solutions of the quantum-corrected nonlinear Schrodinger (QNLS) equation.
