Abstract

We show that the scaling symmetry breaking in soliton scattering reveals the hidden role of the soliton self-interaction (“binding”) energy and its dramatic impact on the wave-particle duality of solitons. Solitonic analog of the de Broglie wavelength and phenomenon similar to the Ramsauer-Taunsend effect can be discovered for Schrödinger solitons.
