Abstract

The first-order imaging properties of dielectric rods with refractive index decreasing quadratically with distance from the axis are analyzed from the viewpoint of gaussian ray optics. Cardinal-point locations vary with rod length, but the usual object-image relationships are then still applicable. Several ray diagrams are shown; one of the examples is a contact magnifier.
