Abstract

The rotational sensitivity of the fiber resonator gyro is derived and shown to be approximately equal to that of the fiber interferometer gyro for typical fiber and source parameters. The fiber resonator, like the fiber interferometer, is susceptible to errors due to thermally induced nonreciprocity; however, by reducing splice and coupler losses, it should be possible to reduce these errors well below those in the fiber interferometer.
