Paper Abstract

We report the careful characterization of a passive monolithic ZnSe based optical fluence limiter that, in addition to protecting downstream optical components, also exhibits self-protection. The output energy is held to below 3 nJ using 30 ps 532 nm pulses while the low energy transmission is greater than 10% . This device has a useful wavelength range from 500 - 950 nm.
