Abstract
We report a method for determining the refractive index profile of polymer optical fiber preforms by direct beam deflection measurements. The method is simple to use, compact, and has good resolution. The profile is obtained from the deflection data by numerically integrating the differential ray equation for a radial refractive index gradient. Refractive index profiles of both graded-index (GRIN) and step-index fiber preforms are reported.
