Temporal Bragg solitary waves in the form of collinear three-wave weakly coupled states are studied theoretically and experimentally in a two-mode optical waveguide, exhibiting square-law nonlinearity. The dynamics of shaping their optical components, bright and dark, is studied, and the roles of localizing pulse width and phase mismatch are revealed.
