Paper Abstract

We report our progress towards a high performance solid-state ring laser gyro using a diode-pumped Nd-YAG crystal as the gain medium. We then discuss the possibility of including in this device a highly dispersive medium, which could serve for testing the recent proposal by Shariar and coworkers of a fast-light ring laser gyro. This discussion is supported in particular by the recent results obtained at Laboratoire Aimé Cotton with electromagnetically induced transparency in metastable helium
