Abstract: We demonstrate that the parametric mixing of an ultrashort Zakharov-Manakov (ZM) soliton pulse with a quasi-continuous-wave (CW) signal in a weakly quadratic nonlinear and dispersive medium may lead to the generation of a three-wave soliton with variable speed, or trappon. We show that trappons may provide a novel mechanism of cavityless ultrashort pulse train generation. The timewidth, the amplitude and the repetition rate of the generated pulse trains may be controlled in a stable manner by adjusting the intensity level of the CW signal and/or the ZM short soliton pulse.
