Abstract

Resonator micro-optic gyro (RMOG) is a promising candidate for the next generation inertial rotation sensor based on the Sagnac effect. A current modulation technique used in an external cavity laser diode is proposed to construct the gyroscope system for the first time. The resonance curves before and after eliminating accompanying amplitude modulation are theoretically analyzed, calculated, and simulated; the demodulation curves with different modulation currents are formulated theoretically; and the optimum modulation current corresponding to the maximum sensitivity is obtained. The experiment results from the established RMOG experimental setup demonstrate that a bias stability of 2.7deg/s (10 s integrated time) over 600 s, and dynamic range of ±500deg/s are demonstrated in an RMOG with a silica optical waveguide ring resonator having a ring length of 12.8 cm.
