Abstract
Resonant optical gyroscopes suffer serious performance degradation induced by noises. We propose using an air-gap silicon-on-silica slot waveguide ring resonator as the resonant cavity of a resonant integrated optical gyroscope. We estimate possible backscattering, Kerr effect, polarization fluctuation, and thermal drift in the air-gap slot waveguide. It is shown that the backscattering, Kerr nonlinearity, and thermal instabilities can decrease significantly compared to those in a common solid-core silicon waveguide cavity, and perturbations of the polarization fluctuation may be eliminated. In addition, a slot-waveguide cavity is more beneficial for integration than a photonic bandgap fiber cavity.
