Paper Abstract

This paper reviews the basics of the interferometric fiber- optic gyroscope: fundamental principle based on Sagnac effect, importance of reciprocity and single-mode propagation, analysis of coherence and polarization problems, signal processing techniques. It also describes the technological progress of guided-wave components. Finally, recent trends like multi-axis configurations and rare-earth doped fiber source are presented.
