Abstract

A generalization of the Talbot effect to the case of a tapered gradient-index medium for nonuniform and uniform illumination is considered. Self-image positions are changed by a function depending on the taper profile, the illumination, and the periodic object. An analogy with the conventional lens-imaging formula for both types of illumination is presented.
