AbstractAbstract: The vortex filament model is used to investigate the interaction of a quantized vortex ring with a straight vortex line and also the interaction of two solitons traveling in opposite directions along a vortex. When a ring reconnects with a line, we find that a likely outcome is the formation of a loop soliton. When they collide, loop solitons reconnect as they overlap each other producing either one or two vortex rings. These simulations are relevant for experiments on quantum turbulence in the zero temperature limit where small vortex rings are expected to be numerous. It seems that loop solitons might also commonly occur on vortex lines as they act as transient states between the absorption of a vortex ring before another ring is emitted when the soliton is involved in a reconnection.
