Abstract

The effect of phase-matched third-harmonic generation on the structure and stability of spatial solitary waves is investigated. A power threshold for the existence of two-frequency spatial solitons is found, and the multistability of solitary waves in a Kerr medium owing to a higher-order nonlinear phase shift caused by cascaded third-order processes is revealed.
