Abstract

An effective method for enhancing the sensitivity of interferometric fiber-optic gyroscope (IFOG) is presented. Light waves propagate twice along the same sensing coil made of polarization-maintaining fiber in different polarization states by inducing a fiber polarization splitter/combining in the IFOG. Preliminary performance data of a gyro prototype exhibits 0.006°/h bias stability.
