Abstract
In this paper, an active ring-coupled Mach-Zehnder interferometer (arcMZI) for rotation sensing is proposed. Theoretical resolution formula of this arcMZI gyroscope was deduced by using of transfer matrix method and noise analysis model. The simulation result shows that the theoretical maximum sensitivity of arcMZI gyroscope can be enhanced at least two orders of magnitude compared with the single-bus resonator (SBR) gyroscope for the same footprint and effective loss after equivalent optimization. The arcMZI gyroscope could be of great potential to meet the tactical demands of future inertial navigation.
