Paper Abstract

This paper describes a study on the effects of scattering between polarization states in the sense loop of depolarized Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyros. The focus of this study is on the effects of component imperfections (polarizers, depolarizers, etc.). In this approach a single scattering center is assumed to exist at an arbitrary point in the sense loop. Insight is gained into the relative importance of the various components and their imperfections.
