Abstract
The free propagation of a wavefront in an inhomogeneous medium with parabolic refractive index profile and the division of the wavefront into Fresnel zones are studied. We determine the radius and the area of each zone as well as the zone contribution to the total wave at an observation point inside the medium. We find the condition that the optical path must fulfill from each zone to the aforementioned point so that the disturbance due to successive zones will be in phase opposition. Once this condition is settled the concept of zone plate in gradient- index media can be introduced.
