Paper Abstract

The discovery of circularly polarized eigenmodes in ring resonators has suggested the possibility of enhanced precision measurements of optical rotation. We argue that, except for possible limitations from small scale birefringence, several orders of magnitude improvement can be made in these measurements. The enhancement is attributed to the multiple-pass properties of light in such a resonator.
