The model describes solitons as relativistic particles, the visible light of the continuum as the result of Cerenkov radiation and the infrared light of the continuum as the result of material recoil. The model is applied on super continua generated by a 1064 nm mode locked 2-10 ps pump source launched into microstructure fibres with zero dispersion wavelength in the near infrared. The model predicts that the leading soliton of a pulse train dominates the self frequency shifting of a train of solitons with Tera Hertz repetition rate. The mechanism is responsible for very efficient super continuum generation in certain combinations of ps pulse sources and microstructure fibre designs.
