20 September 1996 Investigation of the polarization effect in all-PM fiber optic gyros
Author Affiliations +
The polarization effect of the all PM FOG is studied by using the Jones matrix theory on the first time. Above this study, the expression of the output noise is derived, which include the polarization degree (or extinction ratio) of the every element in the gyro system. The influence of each parameter on the detected polarization noise is theoretically analyzed, and an effective theory to reduce the detected noise is established.
