Abstract

We analyze the interactions of 2+1-dimensional parametric solitons and demonstrate nonplanar beam switching in a bulk χ2 medium, which includes controllable soliton repulsion, spiraling, and fusion. An analytical model predicting the results of the soliton scattering is derived and verified by direct numerics.
