This device, having a radius of 1 mm, includes a ring cavity weakly coupled (coupling efficiency in the range 1–5%) to a straight output waveguide (see Fig. 2a). To reduce back-reflections, the output waveguide has a 5° tilting angle with respect to cleaved facets of the substrate. 5 V). Guiding structure (Fig. 2b) is a shallow-etched (etch depth *1 lm) ridge waveguide fabricated by e-beam lithography and reactive ion etching. A double quantum well (DQW) structure grown by metal-organic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD) has been used as active region.

When the optical cavity is at rest, to each resonant mode corresponds a resonance frequency which is the same if the cavity is excited by an optical signal propagating either in the CW direction or in M. N. 1007/978-3-642-15494-2_4, Ó Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010 29 30 4 Fiber Optic Gyroscopes the CCW one. When the cavity rotates, to each resonant mode corresponds two resonance frequencies. One relevant to the CW propagation direction and the other to the CCW propagation direction. Difference between these two resonance frequencies is proportional to the angular rate.

Minimum detectable angular rate of active integrated optical gyros is limited by quantum noise and it is given by: dX ¼ dm 180 Â 3600  PÂ ð =hÞ S p ð5:1Þ where S is the gyro scale factor (see Eq. 3), dm is the linewidth of lasing emission, and P is the parameter taking into account readout system performance (see Eq. 8). The angle random walk induced by quantum noise is given by: WARW ¼ dX dm 180 Â 60  pffiffiffi pffiffiffi ¼ pffiffiffiP Â = h p 60 B S B ð5:2Þ where dX is expressed in °/h and B is the sensor bandwidth.
