A study was performed on launching light into a single-mode silica glass fiber. The radial gradient-index (GRIN) lens designed to focus a collimated beam of light into the fiber attached to its rear facet was discussed. The method of computing the light amplitude distribution at the focal plane of GRIN lens was presented.
