Abstract

The basic electromagnetic properties of tapered graded index fibers are equivalent to the properties of a class of concave metallic waveguides. Although useful in their own right, such metal waveguides also provide a straightforward and inexpensive means for studying the characteristics of more complicated tapered media.
