Abstract
A generalization of Talbot effect to the case of a tapered gradient index medium is considered. An initial linear periodic object illuminated by a coherent light beam is shown to repeat through this medium. Self-image positions are changed by a function depending on the taper profile parameter, the illumination parameters and the object period.
