Abstract

We have studied the nonlinear optical transmission of several isotropic liquid crystal cored fiber and fiber array. These fiber arrays are capable of good image transmission as well as optical limiting of nanosecond and picosecond laser pulses with low threshold and clamped transmission. The nonlinear optical mechanics involved are nonlinear absorptions and nonlinear scattering by thermal and density index changes.
