The coherent manipulation of Bose-Einstein Condensates by far blue detuned dipole potentials is discussed. “Classical” atom optical elements, like mirrors and waveguides, are realised and the dynamics of coherent matter waves interacting with these elements is investigated. The local manipulation of the phase of the condensate wavefunction by temporally applied dipole potentials represents a powerful tool for the design of matter waves. We use this method in particular for the creation of dark solitons in Bose-Einstein condensates and study their dynamics.
