Abstract

The short range revival of an arbitrary monochromatic optical field, which propagates in a quadratic GRIN rod, is a well-known effect that is established assuming the first-order approximation of the propagation operator. We discuss the revival and multiple splitting of an off-axis Gaussian beam propagating to relatively long distances in a quadratic GRIN medium. These effects are obtained assuming the second-order approximation of the propagation operator in this medium.
