Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG) chips
The fiber-optic gyro (FOG) exploited the technology of low loss, single mode, optical fibers in the mid 70s. As compared to the previous generation of ring laser or mechanical gyro systems, the FOG navigation systems offer significantly smaller size, much lower weight, lower power consumption, vast improvement in life and reliability, all at the same or better level of accuracy and reliability.
Selex Sistemi Integrati manufactures a 1550nm FOG device based on Proton Exchange waveguides on LiNbO3 substrate, which includes high performance polarizing optical waveguide and dual Phase Modulator. This technology allows a high polarization extinction in fiber up to >30dB, low insertion losses and low driving voltage.
