ABSTRACT

Using the ray theory of light, a simple theoretical model for the power evolution of a propagating light in graded-index-medium is presented. This work can be useful for different engineering applications that utilize graded-index-material, and for further understanding of natural phenomena that depends on light propagation in graded-index-medium.
