Optical frequency combs are pillars of precision spectroscopy, and their microresonator realization serves applications where miniaturization and large tooth separation are important. Microresonator combs cover an enormous range of time scales varying from the femtosecond periods of optical oscillations to milliseconds corresponding to the kilohertz linewidth of the comb teeth. Here, we develop and implement the carrier-resolved real-field model for multi-octave frequency combs, which allows for nearly ab initio capture of all the time scales involved. As an example, we consider a microresonator that has a mix of second- and third-order nonlinearities and uses periodic poling. By applying the real-field approach, we demonstrate how to surpass traditional limitations and model the spectral broadening and soliton mode-locking across three optical octaves
