Abstract

A formalism is presented for treating birefringence and polarization in fiber optic sensors. This formalism is applied to study theoretical characteristics of fiber gyroscopes which are operated with various states of polarization of the input light including nonpolarized and partially polarized light, which have potentially useful characteristics. Measurements supporting the theoretical predictions are described.
