Active resonators based on optical waveguides can significantly enhance the performance of optical gyroscope due to its loss compensation effect. The spontaneous emission noise (SEN) stemmed from optical gain will broaden the linewidth of the resonator and limit the sensitivity and resolution of active resonator optical gyroscope (AROG). In this paper, we modified the sensitivity formula when the spontaneous emission noise is dominant and analyzed theoretically the performance limitations of the AROG. After considering the spontaneous emission noise source, the resolution can be improved through optimizing the design parameters of the AROG
