Let’s say I have a one cubic centimeter of glass. Without going into the details, we know that light passes through this glass with the help of the glass. The glass facilitates light’s transmission through it. The glass does something that enables light to pass.
Because the glass is finite, it seems reasonable to conclude that there must be a limit to the amount of light it can process. Is there a volume limit to the amount of light the glass can process?
Note: I’m not talking about an intensity limit where Kerr Lensing is a factor. I know that high intensity lasers are able to burn a hole through glass. My question is about a volume limit.
Example: The cubic centimeter of glass can process one low intensity red laser. What if we add 40 low intensity green lasers and 40 low intensity blue lasers. Will we notice any change to the red beam?
Question: Is there a limit to the amount of visible light a given volume of glass can transmit?
