21 April 2017 Gyroscope based on a crystalline optical WGM microresonator (Conference Presentation)
Author Affiliations +
We report on a study of performance of both active and passive optical gyroscopes based on high finesse crystalline whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonators. We show that the sensitivity of the devices is ultimately limited due to the nonlinearity of the resonator host material. A gyroscope characterized with 0.02 deg/hr^1/2 angle random walk and 2 deg/hr bias drift is demonstrated.
