Paper Abstract

An account is given of the design parameters of the polarization-maintaining single-mode optical fibers currently under development for incorporation in interferometric FOGs (IFOGs). Attention is given to a fiber design that satisfies IFOG requirements; optical performance parameters that encompass coil and splice results are presented. The polymer coating is found to play a substantial role in the maintenance of coil performance over a range of temperatures.
