Paper Abstract

We name the phenomena 'optodynamics' when the light with a defined linear momentum or an angular momentum interacts with external forces and force momenta of an inertial system and there is no change in the dimensions and time of the moving system. A semiclassical theory is applied to elucidate the effects. The minimal measured angle of rotation for a laser gyro is defined. The additive decrease of the gyro scale factor due a standing wave non-plane phase front is obtained. It is found that the existence of 'dead zone' on the gyro characteristics is a result of the force momentum precession of the light in a ring resonator. Gyroscopic invariant of a ring laser is defined. Autonomous laser accelerometer is proposed.
