Abstract
A simple experimental technique for the measurement of refractive index profiles of axially symmetric optical fibers is presented. This method is based on image phase gradients introduced into a transmitted optical field by a fiber sample. An image of the phase gradients is obtained using a technique based on bright field microscopy. Then a relative refractive index profile of optical fibers is reconstructed by means of the inverse Abel transform.
