Brillouin/Raman compensation of the Kerr-effect-induced bias in a nonlinear ring laser gyroscope.

Abstract

In this Letter, the beat frequency at rest of a ring laser gyroscope with nonlinear effects is discussed in detail. Even without an additional intensity-stabilizing system, the random nullshift bias induced by the Kerr effect is compensated by the phase shift associated with the stimulated Brillouin/Raman scattering. And the nonlinear stimulated scattering… (More)
