Abstract

We have performed a critical analysis of optical limiting materials exhibiting the two typical absorption mechanisms of reverse saturable absorption (RSA) and two-photon absorption (TPA). The limiting characteristics of beam propagation in nonlinear liquids that exhibit RSA and TPA are discussed, and guidelines for materials and parameter optimization that will result in practical large dynamic range devices are given.
