Paper Abstract

We review recent experimental, theoretical and numerical results dealing with the generation and the interaction of solitary waves in second-order nonlinear crystals. Particular emphasis is devoted to the issues related to the collisions between two-dimensional type II second-order solitons of orthogonal polarization in a KTP crystal. We report the experimental evidence that both quasi elastic and inelastic collision (when two solitons at input merge into a single one at output) are feasible, depending on the relative transverse velocity of the interacting beams.
