Summary: The principal aim of this paper is to employ Bessel-type operators in proving the inequality \begin{aligned} \int_0^\pi dx |f'(x)|^2 \geq \frac{1}{4} \int_0^\pi dx \frac{|f(x)|^2}{\sin^2 (x)}+\frac{1}{4} \int_0^\pi dx |f(x)|^2,\quad f\in H_0^1 ((0,\pi)), \end{aligned} where both constants $$1/4$$ appearing in the above inequality are optimal. In addition, this inequality is strict in the sense that equality holds if and only if $$f \equiv 0$$. This inequality is derived with the help of the exactly solvable, strongly singular, Dirichlet-type Schrödinger operator associated with the differential expression \begin{aligned} \tau_s=-\frac{d^2}{dx^2}+\frac{s^2-(1/4)}{\sin^2 (x)}, \quad s \in [0,\infty), x \in (0,\pi). \end{aligned} The new inequality represents a refinement of Hardy’s classical inequality \begin{aligned} \int_0^\pi dx |f'(x)|^2 \geq \frac{1}{4}\int_0^\pi dx \frac{|f(x)|^2}{x^2}, \quad f\in H_0^1 ((0,\pi)), \end{aligned} and it also improves upon one of its well-known extensions in the form \begin{aligned} \int_0^\pi dx |f'(x)|^2 \geq \frac{1}{4}\int_0^\pi dx \frac{|f(x)|{}^2}{d_{(0,\pi)}(x)^2}, \quad f\in H_0^1 ((0,\pi)), \end{aligned} where $$d_{(0,\pi)}(x)$$ represents the distance from $$x \in (0,\pi)$$ to the boundary $$\{0,\pi\}$$ of $$(0,\pi)$$.
