Abstract

We apply the recently developed theory of frequency generation by mixing of solitons and dispersive waves [Phys. Rev. E 72, 016619 (2005)] to explain the observed formation, quasi-trapping and frequency shift of the spectral peaks at the blue edge of supercontinua generated in silica-core photonic crystal fibers.
