I have discovered that in the coherent regime of ultrabroad-bandwidth Raman generation, a large number of long-lived soliton pulse trains are spontaneously generated. This novel solution of the dispersionless and highly transient regime, involving more than 40 distinct Raman lines of comparable amplitude, is found to be a strong attractor in the nonlinear dynamics, even when the system is initially far from this limit.
