Abstract

A fiber gyroscope is reported that uses polarization-holding fiber in the coil, the phase modulator, and the coupler. The random-drift coefficient, calculated from rms noise levels, was 8.104deg/h, within a factor of 2 of an experimentally determined quantum and thermal limit. White-noise behavior was observed for integration time constants from 1 to 40 sec. Device characteristics and performance are presented.
