Paper Abstract

The Rayleigh backscattering in Optical Passive Ring-Resonator Gyro (OPRG) is newly formulated in consideration of the temporal coherence of the optical source. This scattering degrades the gyro linearity due to its resonance peak splitting under the rotation. The theoretical limit of rotation sensing is also computed considering the optical source coherence.
