A FOG has two electrical signal interfaces: the input u(t) for the modulation signal and the output v(t) from the photodetector. The signal path u(t) to v(t) through the Sagnac-interferometer can be modeled as a nonlinear transmission channel. The characteristics of this transmission channel are dependent on the parameter rotation rate Phi(s). A combination of variable period serrodyne and fixed frequency sine signals is used as the modulation signal u(t). The received spectrum of v(t) depends on the rotation rate Phi(s). It is shown analytically that the Sagnac-shift is exactly compensated, when the amplitudes of two of the spectral components are equal.
