We show that during the spatiotemporal compression in a periodic Kerr waveguide array, stimulated Raman scattering can effectively balance the effects of self-phase modulation, diffraction, and group-velocity dispersion, eliminating collapse and breakup over a wide range of input powers and leading to stable propagation in a single site.
