Context. Pulsars show irregularities in their pulsed radio emission that originate from propagation e ff ects and the intrinsic activity of the source. Aims. In this work, we investigate the role played by magnetic reconnection and the formation of plasmoids in the pulsar wind current sheet as a possible source of intrinsic pulse-to-pulse variability in the incoherent, high-energy emission pattern. Methods. We used a two-dimensional particle-in-cell simulation of an orthogonal pulsar…
