Abstract: Theory and experiments show that the nonlinear development of the modulational polarization instability of an intense light beam in a normally dispersive, low-birefringence optical fiber leads to ultrashort dark-soliton-like trains with repetition rates in the terahertz range in the polarization orthogonal to the pump.
