A Study of Ring Laser Gyroscopes
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2008)
This thesis presents a study of a 1.6 metre square, helium-neon based ring laser gyroscope (denoted PR-1). This device is mounted on one of the internal walls of a high rise building. After optimisation a cavity Q of ...
New Approaches to Gyroscopic Lasers
(University of Canterbury. Physics and Astronomy, 2013)
This thesis presents a study of two aspects of ring laser gyroscopes: Correction of systematic errors due to optical backscatter, and development of solid-state ring laser gyroscopes. Backscatter at the optical surfaces ...
