The square ring laser, unlike the triangular ring, can exhibit a bias due to the combined effect of slight nonplanar deformations (a reciprocal rotation effect) and an applied magnetic field (a nonreciprocal rotator). In this paper, the bias as a function of net tilt out-of-plane, magnetic field and net mirror retardance is calculated and its importance as an error source in the planar square ring laser gyroscope is discussed.
