Paper Abstract

The theoretical analysis of sensitivity of the Sagnac interferometer-based sensor is presented. This setup has wide range of implementation -- one of them is a perimeter sensor for security systems. Sensor sensitivity is determined firstly by a frequency-phase sensitivity, which is connected with the interferometer principle of operation and, secondly, by electronic noise of a processing unit and attenuation of used fiber optic.
