Abstract

Light propagation in a meniscus made of a crystal with a radially directed optical axis is considered under geometric optics approximation. A model of discrete refraction of an extraordinary ray in the meniscus is developed. Nonlinear propagation of extraordinary rays in a meniscus, which depends on the geometric dimensions of the component, ratio of refractive indices for ordinary and extraordinary rays, and local direction of the optical axis of the crystal, is demonstrated.
