Paper Abstract

Rayleigh backscatter from the sensing coil in an optical fibre gyroscope has for some time been recognised as a source of rotation rate error. This paper describes an analysis which describes the correlation between the backscatter beams in each direction and discusses some of the systems implications of this correlation.
