Abstract

Raman-shifted solitons in a photonic-crystal fiber can serve as a pump field for phase-matched third-harmonic generation in a higher-order guided mode of the same fiber. Phase matching for this soliton–dispersive-wave mixing process differs in its physics and in its formal notation from the conventional phase matching for third-harmonic generation with a dispersive pump.
