Paper Abstract

The intensity difference between counter propagating waves in ring lasers when back scattering is provides by the outside mirrors is analyzed. The difference can be expressed as a function of the distances between two ring laser mirrors and their corresponding mirrors when the ring laser is operating in locking zone regime. This difference can be applied to measure a displacement with sub-nanometer accuracy.
