Abstract

An open-loop, all-fiber-optic gyroscope with wide dynamic range and linear scale factor is described. This novel approach converts the Sagnac phase shift into a phase shift in a low-frequency electronic signal by using optical phase modulation followed by amplitude modulation of the electronic signal. Preliminary experimental results verify the theoretical predictions.
