Supercontinua are of high interest in current research due to their broad bandwidth and high brightness enabling a manifold of applications in, e.g., spectroscopy or precision metrology.
Typically, a higher-order soliton is formed during the supercontinuum generation process, which is perturbed by higher-order dispersion leading to the fission into fundamental solitons, each radiating energy into a dispersive wave . These dispersive waves propagate in the same transverse mode as the corresponding solitons.
In multi-mode waveguides, nonlinear coupling allows for energy exchange between transverse modes. In this contribution, we show an experimental evidence of soliton dynamics in multi-mode silicon nitride (Si3N4) waveguides, where a dispersive wave is generated in a different transverse mode than the pump mode, triggered by intermodal cross-phase modulation. These intermodal soliton dynamics lead to new phase-matching conditions, enabling the generation of new frequencies.
