Collisions between spatial solitons of orthogonal polarization were realized in AlGaAs slab waveguides. Four wave mixing effects between the orthogonally polarized beams led to phase-dependent energy transfer and deflection. The linear birefringence of the waveguide was estimated, and used to correlate the results to simulations.
