Solitons are fascinating phenomena which crop up in many unrelated fields, including biology, fluid mechanics and fibre optics.

Here we will show that the self-sustaining nature of a soliton wave packet can be exploited in optical parametric oscillators to create extremely stable and high quality femtosecond laser pulses, using a cheaper and more compact arrangement than conventional devices.
