We consider ultrafast second order frequency conversion processes, under group velocity matching conditions. The three wave interaction equations, describing velocity matched ultrafast optical frequency conversion processes, can be reduced to Sine-Gordon equation. In this way, the well known Sine-Gordon solitons can be mapped into three wave soliton solutions. Here, we report the numerical dynamics of three wave simultons, two-solitons and breathers in ultrafast second order frequency conversion processes.
