We consider physical principles of realizing the Bragg regime of three-order scattering of light by acoustic phonons in birefringent media in specially elaborated case, when direct transitions between all the orders of scattering are allowed and, moreover, the probabilities of these transitions can be electronically controlled. The exact and closed analytical model with slightly mismatched wave numbers predicts sculpturing multi-pulse four-wave coupled states. Computer simulations for the spatial-frequency distributions of their optical components are performed. Thus, multi-pulse four-wave Bragg solitons, originating with a two-phonon non-collinear light scattering, are uncovered in periodic birefringent media providing direct transitions between all the light modes. The performed analysis is confirmed by the experimental studies.
