Abstract

We propose the design of an optical limiter based on a microelectromechanical systems deformable mirror. The design is based on aperturing focused light reflected out of an optically driven deformable mirror, deformed in a parabolic form. We derive an expression for the reflected light intensity, and we show that the reflected light saturates as a function of back illumination light intensity.
