A newly-developed normal mode model of laser dynamics in a generalised array of waveguides is applied to extend the spin-flip model (SFM) to pairs of evanescently-coupled spin-VCSELS. The effect of high birefringence is explored, revealing new dynamics and regions of bistability. It is shown that optical switching of the polarisation states of the lasers may be controlled through the optical pump and that, under certain conditions, the polarisation of one laser may be switched by controlling the intensity and polarisation in the other.
