Geometric field tracing through GRIN media and fibers (II)

Huiying Zhong

The damping of the media, which is represented by the imaginary part of complex refractive index, affects the electromagnetic field when it travels along the ray path. In previous research, the effect is not explicitly discussed or even neglected. In this report, we propose the mathematical solusion of equation of ray path and normlized field in GRIN media with damping.
