Paper Abstract

This paper describes how a liquid crystal material could be used as a passive, all optical, broad-band and adjustable threshold optical power limiter. The voltage biased method has been utilized to improve the response time of the proposed optical power limiter. Infrared applications of this device are emphasized.
