Paper Abstract

We compare the use of lithium tantalate and lithium niobate as a substrate material for integrated optics chips for fiber optic gyroscopes. We also show the performance of a fiber optic gyroscope using a proton exchange lithium tantalate chip. The results indicate that, when normalized for detected power, the gyroscope built with the lithium tantalate chip performs as well as that with the lithium niobate chip.
