We describe a method of controlled creation and detection of breathers in long Josephson Junctions. We show how a breather can be detected and investigated by measuring switching of the current biased Josephson junction to a resistive state. The complete theoretical description of the switching events associated with the decay of a breather into a fluxon-antifluxon pair is developed. Eventually, we propose several designs of the systems where breathers can be observed.
