Paper Abstract

Based on the theory of Jones matrix and the condition of eigenmode self-consistency, we analyze the effect of linear stress birefringence of prismon the beam polarization (described with the ellipticity and loss of the eigenmodes) and null drift (described with the output frequency difference of the eigenmodes) in a TRP resonator. It is found that the linear stress birefringence of prisms can cause larger polarization ellipticity for both CW (clockwise) and CCW (counterclockwise) beams. The results may be useful for designing and optimizing the structure of super high precision TRP ring laser gyroscopes.
