    Abstract

    In this paper, we review currently available fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG) technologies and major noise factors limiting the performance of FOGs, We investigate possible solutions to noise factors including Rayleigh backscattering, Kerr effect, Faraday, and Shupe effects, Based on these solutions, we present the possible design of an interferometric FOGs employing microstructured fibers. A supercontinuum source can minimize Rayleigh backscattering and Kerr effect by reducing the coherence length of FOGs. Also, by using a photonic bandgap fiber with hollow core, Kerr, Faraday and Shupe effects can be minimized.
