Paper Abstract

The feasibility of using a holographic lens as a coupler in a fiber-optic gyro that is conceived as a ring Sagnac interferometer is experimentally assessed, and the equivalent Bragg condition for holographic gratings is discussed together with the Q factor for slanted gratings. The present holographic couplers yield superior splitting ratio and polarization nonsensitivity; they are also easily constructed and low-cost. The recording medium used is dichromated gelatin, which possesses high diffraction efficiency and low noise.
