A remarkable feature about the temporal optical soliton is that it can be phase-matched to new frequencies, emitting so-called resonant radiation (RR). This constitutes an efficient source of ultrafast pulses in emerging wavelength regimes, and plays a vital role in coherently extending the supercontinuum bandwidth [1]. RR waves are usually invoked by four-wave mixing (4WM) through the self-phase modulation (SPM) term A|A|2, or more recently through the conjugate SPM term A∗|A|2, or the third-harmonic generation (THG) term A3 [2, 3]. We here show with theoiy and experiments that three-wave mixing (3 WM) also supports soliton-induced RR waves [4].
