An attempt was made to model the refraction due to two different Rabi frequencies, a lower value of 120 MHz corresponding to the outer edge of the coupling field and a higher one of 300 MHz corresponding to the center of the coupling field. The difference in the refraction produced by these two Rabi frequencies gave a measure of the lensing action on the probe. Positive values of this difference imply a converging lens, while negative values imply a diverging lens.
