Paper Abstract

Recently, there have been shown that in planar liquid crystalline waveguides light beams can form spatial soliton due to the reorientational nonlinearity. Such self-trapped beams require only a few tens of mW of light power and their stability is controlled by state of the light polarization. In this paper, the collisions of previously observed solitons are analyzed theoretically. Obtained results show that analyzed self-trapped beams became unstable due to the interaction with other light beams.
