In order to characterize quantitatively the photonic nanojet, we introduce three parameters: effective length L, peak intensity I, and full-width half-maximum (FWHM) calculated from the intensity distribution of nanojet.
This quality criterion accounts for the utility value of nanojet to the solution of practical problems.

The new study shows that nanojets ought to behave differently from macroscopic ones.
