The elliptically-polarized nonlinear beam propagation in a two-dimensional optical guided-wave system containing Kerr media is solved numerically by using the finite-element method. Computed results for a nonlinear substrate exhibit novel transverse effects such as spatially modulational instabilities for solitons emitted from a film. Sensitiveness of the beam propagation on the initial state of polarization suggests a possibility for constructing new photonic devices.
