Abstract

We analyze the effect of four-wave mixing on collisions between spatial solitons with different frequencies. As expected, we find that, when certain phase-matching conditions are satisfied, four-wave mixing may destroy the beam-switching and -steering behavior predicted in earlier analyses that ignored this effect. But we also find that by appropriate choice of launching conditions those potentially useful properties can be retained, even near phase matching.
