The Hong-Ou-Mandel experiment leads indistinguishable photons simultaneously reach-ing a 50:50 beam splitter to emerge on the same port through two-photon interference.Motivated by this phenomenon, we consider numerical experiments of the same flavor forclassical, wave objects in the setting of repulsive condensates. We examine dark solitonsinteracting with a repulsive barrier, a case in which we find no significant asymmetries inthe emerging waves after the collision, presumably due to their topological nature. We alsoconsider case examples of two-component systems, where the dark solitons trap a brightstructure in the second-component (dark-bright solitary waves). For these, pronouncedasymmetries upon collision are possible for the non-topological bright component. Wealso show an example of a similar phenomenology for ring dark-bright structures in twodimensions.
