Paper Abstract

An all-fiber, 1.3 µm passive optical rotation sensor utilizing 4.2 km of single mode fiber and synchronous detection has been constructed and tested in the laboratory. RMS noise equivalent rotation rates of 0.005 deg/hr have been measured. Drift and scale factor variations resulted in a change in the indicated rotation rate of 0.4 deg/hr over a 1 hour time period.
