Abstract
Using a simple non-destructive and non-interferometric technique, we obtained an approximation of the average index profile for a partially symmetrical air-silica microstructured optical fiber. The method proposed in [1] for conventional fibers, where an image of the phase gradients is introduced into a transmitted optical field by a fiber sample, was used. An image of the phase gradients was obtained using a technique based on bright field microscopy. Then, an average of the refractive index profile for optical fibers was reconstructed using the inverse Abel transform.
