Soliton propaqation in nonlinear Kerr media gives rise to pulse or beam interactions. In the spatial domain, separate in phase fundamental solitons merge after an appropriate propagation length. Using this beam defliction we propose an AND logical optical gate that would work in the picosecond range.
