Abstract: We have experimentally observed the relatively low-power self-switching of polarization ellipticity along the profile of initially circularly polarized picosecond pulses in a spun birefringent fiber. The switching and pulse breakup effects originate from the intensity-dependent modulation of the birefringence beat length.
