Abstract:

The contract was a design study to determine an optimum ring laser gyro size to be used for Army missile applications. As a result of the study, the details of which are presented in this document, a 20 cm path length laser gyro is recommended. The gyro will be operated with the infra-red transition. The lock-in compensation technique will be an alternating bias obtained by use of the transverse Kerr magneto-optic effect at one of the magnetic mirrors.
