Joseph C. Palais 5.2 7 GRADED-INDEX FIBER Since n 2 < n 1 , then sin θ 2 > sin θ 1 and θ 2 > θ 1 , Result: Rays are bent away from the normal. Thus the rays are continually bent as they progress towards the cladding. At some point, the incident angle is greater than the critical angle and total reflection occurs.
