Abstract

We consider the application of photorefractive beam fanning as an optical limiter. Results indicate that by focusing the incident laser light into the photorefractive crystal and by applying electric fields that limiting is possible at the 10μJ range with an optical density or O. D. of 3. These results are independent of the incident optical pulse width.
