Abstract

A new approach to an open-loop, all-fiber gyroscope with a wide dynamic range and a linear scale factor is described. For signal processing, the Sagnac phase shift is converted into a phase shift in the low-frequency electrical signal by using a triangular phase-modulation waveform followed by gate switching. The basic principle of this technique and experimental results are reported.
