Paper Abstract

We consider two types of ring gyro operation which are designed to reduce the lock-in threshold and to bias the gyro away from the dead band, respectively. In the phase-conjugate ring gyro, the two lasing modes are coherently coupled and mutually phase-conjugated. The coherent phase relationship between the two modes provides the basis for resisting the frequency pulling due to backscattering. In the photorefractive-biased ring laser gyro, the nonreciprocal optical transmission leads to a split in both oscillation frequency and intensity. This splitting provides the bias for operation away from the dead zone.
