Paper Abstract

Under certain conditions, laser directed at aircraft can be a hazard. The most likely scenario is when a bright visible laser causes distraction or temporary flash blindness to a pilot, during a critical phase of flight such as landing or takeoff. It is also possible, that a visible or invisible beam could cause permanent harm to a pilot's eyes. We present a non-linear, solid-state dynamic filter solutions protecting from dazzling and damage in a passive way. Our filters limit the transmission, only if the power exceeds a certain threshold as opposed to spectral filters that block a certain wavelength permanently.
