Measurement of the wavelength dispersion of optical limiting in materials can provide invaluable information useful for laser safety device applications. However, it can be a tedious task when conventional tunable laser sources like the optical parametric amplifier are employed for excitation. Here we report the spectral dispersion of ultrafast optical limiting in the laser dye Coumarin-120 in the wavelength region 630 to 900 nm, measured in a single Z-scan, using the white-light continuum as the excitation source. Optical limiting is found to arise from two-photon absorption, and its spectrum agrees very well in shape with the linear absorption spectrum.
