Collision-induced shape transformations of partially coherent solitons Academic Article uri icon


  • We present experimental results related to collisional properties of partially coherent solitons (PCSs). In experiments with a photorefractive crystal we show that collisions in nonlinear media cause the PCS comprised of few mutually incoherent soliton components to change its shape. 1999 The American Physical Society.
