An experimental and numerical investigation of the dynamical, time-dependent effects accompanying the formation and interaction of two-dimensional spatial screening solitons in a photorefractive strontium barium niobate crystal is performed. These effects include initial diffraction, collapse to the soliton shape, the oscillation of beam diameters, beam bending, and the rotation, twisting, and turning of soliton pairs. The dynamics of complex spiraling of two incoherent solitons is considered in more detail. © 1999 The American Physical Society.
