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 examples for optical wavelengths lambda = 0.633 microm and lambda = 1.1 micro and both spontaneous and stimulated noises. Results show that…

Multimode fiber-optic interferometry.
TLDR
The authors demonstrate here a simpler method that exploits the periodic coherence length of a cw multimode laser and considers the feasibility of very high resolution Fourier-transform spectroscopy of lasers and laser Raman scattering.

TLDR
These effects of stimulated Raman and Brillouin scattering must be considered in the design of optical communication systems using low loss fibers especially when low loss optical fibers are used.

TLDR
An extension of the above work to the relatively narrow band­ width of 0.5 c/s, where the theoretically predicted value of 5 X 10 W has been detected with a S/N power ratio of 4.5, and the choice of detector (PbS) was unfortunate as far as low Ps was concerned.

TLDR
This paper points out that, if the assumption of small scatters is not valid, the more general theory of Mie scattering must be applied in order to predict the angular dependence of such scattering correctly.

TLDR
The measurement of the angular distribution of light scattered from a low-loss fiber at 1.06 microm and 0.633 microm shows Rayleigh scattering, and a previously undetected, near-forward scattering peak was observed.

TLDR
As new processes become available and record lows in fiber loss are being reached, propagation theory is finding new challenges as well and multimode fibers seem desirable with respect to transmitter compatibility, splicing, and fabrication tolerances.
