Abstract

We develop a general framework for understanding the characteristics of multi-frequency (multi-colour) parametric solitons. We identify two special classes of such solitons: cascaded parametric solitons, where the optical energy is shared between several harmonically-related frequency bands; and isolated-bandwidth solitons, where all of the optical energy is localized within a single frequency band. As an example, we consider the case of a five-colour isolated-bandwidth parametric soliton in a Kerr medium.
