Paper Abstract

The contribution of light induced scattering to nonlinear optical limiting is theoretically and experimentally investigated. It is shown that light induced scattering is caused by fine-scale (1 divided by 10 micrometer) inhomogeneities formation, very low (comparable to spontaneous noise) laser beam inhomogeneities can evolve into light induced scattering. The numerical modeling of scattered radiation angular distribution and laser radiation attenuation in optical limiters was performed. The modeling results were compared with the experimental ones.
