Abstract

The spatial resolution of laser eigenstates is applied to ring geometry. A bidirectional optical diode based on the Faraday effect and nonreciprocal intracavity losses is theoretically and experimentally investigated. This novel optical diode combined with spatial separation provides a biased gyro with no lock-in band.
