Paper Abstract

We propose a new optical device for measuring inertial rotation. The device uses the nonreciprocal frequency shifts of the self-oscillations generated in a phase conjugate ring cavity under rotation. We present the analysis of this concept and obtain the scale factor equation of such a gyro. The results of a preliminary experiment are also discussed.
