Re-entrant fiber optic gyroscope (Re-FOG), using a shorter Sangnac sensitive ring (SSR), makes the two counter-propagandizing lights re-enter the ring before they interference with each other when they reach the photo-detector. By this means, the Re-FOG gets the same detecting accuracy as the conventional interferometric fiber optic gyroscope (IFOG) that has several times length of the sensitive ring. In this paper, the principle of the Re-FOG is first reviewed. Then the output signal is analyzed. Finally a method of signal detection is presented.
