Abstract
In this article we show a fibre-optic device based on the Sagnac effect designed for measuring rotational motions which appear during seismic events. The experimental investigations of presented Autonomous Fiber-Optical Rotational Seismographs indicate that such devices keep the accuracy no less than 5.1·10-9 to 5.5·10-8 rad/s in the frequency band from 0.83 Hz to 106.15 Hz. Furthermore, their operations are controlled fully remotely via Internet. We present the comparison of results obtained by such system in the field test with a mechanical rotational seismometer which is mounted simultaneously in the seismological observatory in Książ, Poland.
