Paper Abstract

The two counter-propagating waves in a mode-locked ring laser--as opposed to a cw ring laser--can be totally uncoupled in phase. As a result, these lasers can be used as ultra-sensitive detectors of phase shifts, and in particular, laser gyros. Some of the implementations of these laser gyros are reviewed.
