Abstract

Operation of a two-dimensional photonic bandgap optical limiter was studied at 514.5 nm for pulse durations of 0.1 to 4 ms. Photonic crystals consisted of 180–230-nm spatial-period nanochannel glasses containing a thermal nonlinear liquid. A dynamic range in excess of 130 was observed in a single-element device.
