Paper Abstract

The test results of a high performance, open-loop, all-fiber-optic rotation sensor are reported. The device used a low-coherence superradiant diode as the optical source with a polarization-maintaining sensing coil, polarizer, and loop coupler. Various contributors to bias drift that were systematically analyzed and measured are discussed. Various noise sources contributing to the random walk coefficient are described. The thermal sensitivity of the sensor is described.
