Sensitivity analysis of the Sagnac-effect optical-fiber ring interferometer.

Abstract

The sensitivity of a recently reported optical-fiber ring interferometer as a gyroscope has been analyzed. Photomixing SNRs were derived for the detection schemes. Noise sources due to the Rayleigh, Brillouin, Mie, and core-cladding interface light scattering processes are assessed quantitatively. Optimum gyroscope sensitivities are discussed via numerical… (More)
