Abstract

We present data that are the first significant correlation between theory and experiment of a Zeeman laser gyro. This study concerns the behavior of the Zeeman laser-gyro beat note as a function of detuning, magnetic field, and optical activity bias. Both experiment and theory indicate the presence of a gyro configuration that is insensitive to cavity-length changes. This result has obvious importance and relevance to practical laser-gyro devices.
