Paper Abstract

The present FOG uses a fiber-coupled 1.06-micron isolator between the source output and gyro input to achieve stable operation with forward pumping. The rms optical scale factor stability thus achieved is of the order of 15 ppm, in conjunction with 0.05 deg/hr rms phase-bias stability. Due to the specific doping used for the Nd fiber employed by this FOG, the source optical linewidth is only 6.8 nm wide; this is significantly less than in comparable fibers.
