Quadratic spatial solitons, beams that propagate unchanged in shape and magnitude, are supported by second order optical nonlinearities and can occur in all wave mixing processes under appropriate conditions. They are multi-component, consisting of all the frequency components that are coupled by a second order nonlinear interaction near a phase-matching condition. They have been observed in a number of bulk crystalline media, in LiNbO3 slab waveguides and in arrays of parallel, weakly coupled, LiNbO3 channel waveguides. The properties of the solitons and their excitation will be reviewed.
