Abstract

The output signal of a birefringent fiber gyroscope is analyzed, and sources of error due to polarization cross coupling in the fiber and fiber components are identified. Techniques to suppress such errors by modulating the fiber birefringence and balancing the optical power in the two polarization modes are proposed and demonstrated.
