Abstract

An intensity-dependent polarization-twisting phenomenon has been observed within the temporal profiles of linearly polarized picosecond laser pulses propagating through a nonbirefringent single-mode optical fiber. The substructures of output pulse temporal profiles for the two perpendicular linearly polarized components from linearly polarized input laser pulses have been measured. These strong intensity-dependent temporal structures have been attributed to the twisting action of the linear polarization state as a function of pulse local time.
