Abstract

We describe a new type of phase-conjugate fiber-optic gyro that uses self-pumped phase conjugation. The self-pumped configuration is simpler than externally pumped configurations and permits the use of sensing fibers longer than the coherence length of the laser. A proof-of-principle demonstration of rotation sensing with the device is presented.
