Paper Abstract

A practical closed-loop approach to signal processing in the fiber gyroscope is presented. A triangle wave phase modulation is used in which the slope of the increasing and decreasing sections of the modulation are adjusted independently to compensate for the phase difference due to rotation rate. Accordingly, the phase difference due to rotation is determined solely by the difference in the times spent on each of the legs of the triangle wave. By synchronizing these times to a clock signal, the output becomes a digital measure of rotation angle.
