Paper Abstract

The current status of integrated optics components for fiber gyro applications is reviewed. Progress on the reduction of loss in these components including coupling loss, propagation loss, and bending loss is summarized. Preliminary experimental results on the photorefractive effect in Ti-indiffused LiNbO3 directional couplers at GaAs wavelengths are presented. The photorefractive effect, measured as a drift in the switching state, has been observed for intensities (powers) as low as 32 W/cm2 (3.2 at 0.85
