1 ). 33) Then Eq. 34) According to Eqs. 35) GRIN medium z=o z= Z, Fig. 1. Imaging. 38) where Eq. 92b) has been used, the complex amplitude distribution is proportional to the spatial spectrum of the input field with a scaling factor. This means that the output irradiance is the spatial power spectrum of the input signal. 41) Likewise, from the Fourier transforming condition it follows that at planes zP' the field ray cuts the axis and the axial ray is parallel to the axis. If Eqs. 89b) are taken into account, we conclude that the ray slope at z = zp remains constant and is proportional to the ray position at z = O.

3). 99b) g'" (z{ g:' - g'" (z, )expH g(z')dz'} [ expH g(z')dz'} - [ if ~~ 1 expH g(z')dz'}expH g(z')dz'} For GRIN media with only transverse variation of the refractive index, Eqs. 99c) 20 1 Light Propagation in GRIN Media Xl GRIN medium z=o Zl Fig. 3. The axial and field rays with boundary conditions. l00b) where H, and Hr are the slope of the axial and field rays at z. 100) represent a paraxial ray that originates at a point Xo of the reference plane z = 0 and intersects the other reference plane z, at the point x,.

L) it follows that the complex amplitude on an arbitrary transverse plane can be found with the aid of the kernel, if the field at a reference plane is known. The problem now reduces to the evaluation of the kernel function for GRIN media whose dielectric constants or refractive indices are given by Eqs. 69). This task becomes simpler if we note that Eq. 38) represents the propagation of the complex amplitude of the parabolic field between two arbitrary points located at two transverse planes and joined by all classical rays, that is, by rays that minimize the optical path length.
