We study the existence and stability of periodic-wave arrays propagating in uniform quadratic nonlinear media and discover that they become completely stable above a threshold light intensity. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example in physics of completely stable periodic-wave patterns propagating in conservative uniform media supporting bright solitons.
