The application of a numerical algorithm to the design procedure of a multicell stepped limiter (MCSL) is discussed. This application illustrates the ability to predict thermal damage and the thermal lensing effects that occur within the stepped limiter. Both the optical limiting and the temperature profile through the MCSL are determined for three design cases. The results illustrate the potential application of a numerical simulation in designing a MCSL and of predicting thermal damage.
