Paper Abstract

The possibility of solid-state ring laser (SSRL) as a gyroscope was examined first in a frame of diode-laser pumped monolithic Nd:YAG ring resonator. Weak coupling between the counter-propagating waves results in antiphase sinusoidal self-modulation of the intensities. It is observed that the self-modulation frequencies depend on the external rotation rate.
