Paper Abstract

In the assembly of fiber optic gyroscope (FOG), the summation of the fiber tail length of waveguide and fiber ring in two directions cannot be exactly equal (i.e., fiber tail length of FOG in two directions is asymmetry). We analyze and calculate the vibration error of FOG due to this fiber tail length asymmetry based on elastic-optic effect. Inertial navigation simulation is performed to show attitude and positioning errors caused by this vibration error, which clearly shows the importance of reducing fiber-tail length asymmetry in high-accuracy applications.
