Paper Abstract

With the development of more powerful lasers for applications, optical limiters and blockers are required for providing human eye and optical sensors protection. We report on passive optical power control devices based on a range of photonic nanostructures, including mainly nanostructures for spatial field localization to enhance optical nonlinearities. We present the two main optical power control mechanisms: blocking and limiting, as well as their corresponding nanoscale phenomena. We propose a dynamic protection to cameras, sensors and the human eye from laser threats.
