Paper Abstract

We describe a completely passive technique for limiting the power of light beams. The techniques we use are based on optical self-action (self-focusing or defocusing) and non-linear absorption or a combination of both. These processes are passive and thus require no external mechanism to induce limiting other than the light beam itself.
