Paper Abstract

Raytracing methods for gradient-index materials have been available for many years. However, many new applications of gradient-index materials, for example in telecommunications, employ gradient-index elements in situations for which traditional gradient-index raytracing methods are inadequate. A discussion of the limitations fo gradient-index raytracing methods and more exact techniques for modeling propagation through such materials will be discussed.
