Paper Abstract

Means to correct scale factor in the phase-nulling optical gyro are presented. In particular, methods are described that allow the wavelength of the light source to be tracked to high accuracy. A derivative of this technique, allowing the phase-nulling optical gyro to execute an in-flight cold start, is also described.
