Abstract

An optical power limiter is a self-actuating nonlinear optical device that transmits low-intensity light and blocks high-intensity light. A light-controlled electro-optic power limiter that uses a Bi12SiO20 crystal has been demonstrated. The threshold light intensity is determined by the control light and can be set to any desired level. The response time of the light-controlled electro-optic power limiter is of the order of 1 ms.
