Paper Abstract

Recent literature has presented characteristics for 1.3 micron optical devices which indicate that there is significant advantage in using this technology for Sagnac passive gyros. Here, we present our measurements on several optical devices and through analysis, evaluate their impact on performance improvement in a generic fiber optic rate sensor. We conclude that although the use of 1.3 micron technology causes a sensor scale factor reduction, this effect is more than offset by the improvement in signal to noise ratio.
