In a resonator micro-optic gyroscope (R-MOG), backscattering noise and Kerr noise have been key issues affecting the optical gyro output that are difficult to completely suppress. A method is proposed to suppress backscattering noise in a R-MOG. It uses two independent lasers and, by locking the two optical signals at different resonance peaks, a differential output of the two optical signals is achieved that successfully suppresses the backscattering noise. At the same time, a light intensity feedback loop based on a light intensity modulator is added to the loop to ensure the same optical power into the cavity. Experimental results show that the light intensity fluctuation into the gyro system is reduced nearly two orders of magnitude and the bias stability is improved to 9.06 deg/h by using a light intensity feedback loop with two independent lasers.
