Protecting the War Fighter's Vision In a Laser-Rich, Battlefield Environment
James S. Shirk
As the number of common laser wavelengths expands, fabricating appropriate multiline rejection filters becomes more difficult and
their overall transmission declines. Against a frequency agile tunable laser that can produce a threat at many unpredictable wavelengths, fixed filters arc simply not effective. The passive nonlinear optical limiter offers the best hope for protection against these threats.
