Paper Abstract

A summary is given of the uses and calculation of modes and phase shifts in a non-planar ring laser cavity. The multioscillator ring gyro configuration is used as an example of an application of non-planar cavities. A discussion follows on how the possible bias magnetic sensitivity due to a slightly out-of-plane path in a nominally planar gyro may be dramatically reduced by proper control of mirror birefringences and differential reflectivities.
