  • graded index (GI) Descriptive of an optical fiber having a core refractive index that decreases almost parabolically and radially outward toward the cladding. This type of fiber combines high bandwidth with moderately high coupling efficiency. Sometimes called...
  • gradient index (GRIN) lens A lens whose material refractive index varies continuously as a function of spatial coordinates in the medium. See axial gradient; radial gradient; spherical gradient.
