Abstract

Propagation of two orthogonally polarized time-delayed optical solitons in low-birefringence optical fiber is studied experimentally. We demonstrate soliton trapping and collisions and also the ability to control the separation and shape of soliton pulses by varying the power at the input of the fiber.
