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. S1063-651X 99 08804-2
PACS number s : 42.65.Tg, 42.65.Jx, 42.65.Hw
Partially coherent solitons are objects which have recently
attracted a great deal of attention 1­10 . Focusing of the
spatially partially coherent beams has been suggested as
early as in 1967 11 and studied subsequently in 12,13 . On
the other hand, temporally incoherent solitons have been
