Paper Abstract

We have used a physically realistic model to investigate the spatial and temporal behavior of reverse saturable absorption and optical limiting in organometallic cluster compounds. An algorithm was developed to solve numerically the model and is used for the case of a collimated beam to determine various material parameters by fitting theory to experimental optical limiting data. Using these parameters, the algorithm was then extended to the case of converging and/or diverging beams.
