Paper Abstract

Recently observed optical limiting effects of nano- and pico- second laser pulses through a fiber array are analyzed using a model that accounts for various nonlinear and excited state absorption, and subsequent thermal and density effects occurring in the fiber guiding core materials. The nonlinear liquid cored-fiber arrays we have constructed are capable of low optical limiting threshold and clamped output, as well as high resolution image transmission.
