Abstract
The application of the optical fiber waveguides to laser gyroscopes is divided into two sections: 1) The ring interferometer and 2) The ring laser. Experiments show that a well defined, stable interference pattern can be obtained using a single mode fiber. This together with the experimentally obtained coupling efficiency of laser radiation into the fiber (-50%) indicate that in addition to a sensitive ring interferometer gyroscope a ring laser gyroscope can be built using a single mode fiber waveguide as the passive part of the laser cavity.
