The radiation losses of tunnelling leaky modes in graded-index optical fibres are calculated theoretically, and it is shown that the near-field intensity profile has a length dependence. Consequently measurements of the near-field intensity distribution do not give the refractive index profile directly, and a correction factor must be applied. We have investigated this factor and find that it depends only on a single normalisation parameter involving fibre length, core radius and normalised frequency. A further use of the correction factor is to determine the total power attenuation due to the loss of leaky modes.
