The interaction between two quadratic soliton-like beams was investigated for beams launched parallel to one another, and at small crossing angles. The experiments were performed in titanium in-diffused lithium niobate slab waveguides near a Type I phase-matching condition for second harmonic generation (SHG). Only beams at the fundamental frequency were launched and the second harmonic required for quadratic soliton formation was generated upon propagation into the waveguide. The results of the interaction were found to depend on the relative phase between the input fundamental beams, the net phase mismatch for SHG and on the beam crossing angle. Good agreement with numerical simulations of the different interactions was found. In general, the results of the interactions were similar to those found in saturable Kerr-like media.
