Paper Abstract

A 2.8-inch diameter, low-cost interferometric gyroscope has been created through the application of a prototype LiNbO3-based integrated optical circuit (IOC) that incorporates polarizing waveguides, phase modulators, a power splitter/mixer, and polarization-maintaining 'fiber pigtails'. Instrument closed-loop performance exceeds 0.1 deg/hr (1-sigma) bias-drift performance at 100-sec integration time.
