Abstract
A defocused transfer function of experimental microscopic bright-field images, closely connected with the evaluation of the relative refractive index profile of axially symmetric optical fibers, is presented. It is shown that with this function it is possible to obtain, with high precision, the defocused bright-field images of investigated fibers from their focus images and then to easily evaluate the relative refractive index profiles of the fibers.
