Graded Index Fiber

An optical Fiber with a Core having a Refractive Index that decreases with increasing radial distance from the fiber axis. Note: The most common refractive Index Profile for a Graded-Index fiber is very nearly parabolic. The Parabolic Profile results in continual refocusing of the rays in the core, and compensates for Multimode distortion.
