Abstract

We describe theoretically and demonstrate experimentally the principle of a simple technique to reduce substantially the Kerr-induced rotation-rate error in fiber-optic gyroscopes. It consists of modulating the source intensity to adjust the nonlinear interaction between the counterpropagating waves.
