Paper Abstract

Based on phase and frequency modulation techniques two types of fiber-optic gyroscopes are under development at SEL for different applications. A set of identical prototype units has been built for environmental testing and for system concept evaluation. The experience made with the manufacturing of the devices is discussed, regarding failures, performance limits and further improvements. The critical components in the optical part of the gyros are defined.
