Nonlinear-optical Christiansen filter as an optical power limiter

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

We have constructed an optical power limiter based on nonlinear induced scattering in a cell containing crushed glass and a mixture of acetone and carbon disulfide. For 30-ps-long laser pulses the transmitted energy saturates at a value of 6 μJ. We also present the results of a theoretical modeling study that shows how the operating characteristics of such a device can be optimized.
