Abstract

The passive resonator approach to fiber optic rotation sensing has benefitted from recent advances in fiber components. High performance couplers, spliceless resonators1, and long coherence length laser diodes have been described. Polarization maintaining components and 1.3 & 1.55 um wavelength components are being made, and one company is selling high finesse resonators commercially2 This paper describes lapped spliceless optically-contact-bonded resonators and their performance. These resonators have polarization crosstalk of < −20 dB and < 70 kHz linewidth with high modulation depth.
