    Abstract:
    We have developed compact millimeter thick optical fiber arrays with nonlinear optical liquid guiding cores. These image transmitting fiber arrays are capable of passive optical limiting action against frequency agile short (picosecond-nanosecond) laser pulses in the visible spectrum. We present the results of further studies of their limiting performance. We also discuss how a recently discovered extraordinarily large nonlinear optical response of methyl-red doped nematic liquid crystal film may be employed for limiting action on longer pulse or cw lasers with nanowatt threshold power
