Paper Abstract

The Phase-Nulling Optical Gyro (PNOG) has been under development since 1977. Techniques that have been developed to refine the PNOG can be adapted to develop fiber-optic sensors to measure other effects such as acoustic waves, electric and magnetic fields, pressure, temperature and strain. As an example of utilizing PNOG technology to develop other types of fiber-optic sensors, a Sagnac based strain sensor will be described. Emphasis will be placed on techniques and hardware which have been derived from PNOG development. A laboratory model will then be described and data taken with this device will be presented.
