Abstract
In the search for materials suitable for optical limiting applications to protect eyes and electro-optical sensors against laser radiation, fine carbon particles suspended in a liquid have been shown to possess highly desirable properties. This publication reports on the measurement of the threshold energy fluence for optical limiting of nanosecond and microsecond pulses in a high-performance carbon suspension named DREV CBS-100. Thresholds as low as 24 mJ/CM square (microsecond regime) have been obtained. The technique has been tested by measuring materials whose properties can be found in the technical literature.
