In a recently published paper [Opt. Lett. 37, 3636 (2012)], equations for the evolution of the beam quality in a parabolic index (PI) fiber were introduced. Use of those equations for the extraction of the M 2 parameter was erroneous, as an incorrect definition for M 2 was assumed. When defined correctly, M 2 in PI fibers is shown here to be constant. Nonetheless, the optimization of the power delivery properties of PI fibers is governed by the criterion introduced in the paper under discussion.
