Following the previously derived results a general condition is formulated which determines a family of the exact solutions for GRIN rod lenses with perfect (within the paraxial approximation) imaging and transforming capabilities. Using this condition a new index profile is closely evaluated, and the detailed analysis of this construction is presented.
