Abstract

Phase-dependent interactions of two photovoltaic bright spatial solitons in photorefractive Fe : Li Nb O 3 have been studied experimentally. We have observed that in-phase solitons attract each other and fuse together for a small enough crossing angle, whereas out-of-phase solitons repel each other. These results are similar to interactions of bright screening spatial solitons found in saturable photorefractive media such as strontium barium niobate.
