Abstract

A theoretical model is developed that demonstrates the presence of a ring in the far-field pattern when a graded-index fibre is excited by a collimated beam, incident at a given radius from the core centre. The angular position of this ring can be used to obtain an estimate of the fibre refractive-index profile. provided a correction for the finite beam spot size is applied.
