The problem of the validity of the ergodic hypothesis as applied to a fiber ring interferometer (FRI) is considered on the basis of a comparison between magnitudes of the zero drift of an FRI calculated upon changing temperature of the fiber and upon random realizations of inhomogeneities in a single-mode optical fiber (SMF). The physical nature and statistical characteristics of random inhomogeneities in an SMF, types of polarization nonreciprocity in an FRI, and thermo-optical parameters of… Expand
