Through numerical experiments we show that the use of spatial solitons in second-order parametric interactions could make possible the observation of solitons in the vicinity of the vacuum ultraviolet.

Key words : ultraviolet soliton, optical soliton, spatial soliton, multidimensional soliton, optical parametric interaction
