Hollow-core resonator fiber optic gyroscope using nodeless anti-resonant fiber

Hollow-core resonator fiber optic gyroscope using nodeless anti-resonant fiber
Resonator fiber optic gyroscope (RFOG) performance has hitherto been limited by nonlinearity, modal impurity, and backscattering in the sensing fibers. The use of hollow-core fiber (HCF) effectively reduces nonlinearity, but the complex interplay among glass and air-guided modes in conventional HCF technologies can severely exacerbate RFOG instability. By employing high-performance nested anti-resonant nodeless fiber, we demonstrate long-term stability in a hollow-fiber RFOG of 0.05 deg/h, nearing the levels required for civil aircraft navigation. This represents a 3× improvement over any prior hollow-core RFOG and a factor of 500× over any prior result at integration times longer than 1 h.

Abstract

Resonator fiber optic gyroscope (RFOG) performance has hitherto been limited by nonlinearity, modal impurity, and backscattering in the sensing fibers. The use of hollow-core fiber (HCF) effectively reduces nonlinearity, but the complex interplay among glass and air-guided modes in conventional HCF technologies can severely exacerbate RFOG instability. By employing high-performance nested anti-resonant nodeless fiber, we demonstrate long-term stability in a hollow-fiber RFOG of 0.05 deg/h, nearing the levels required for civil aircraft navigation. This represents a 3× improvement over any prior hollow-core RFOG and a factor of 500× over any prior result at integration times longer than 1 h.
