Stimulated Brillouin Laser Microcavity Gyroscope


A monolithic micro cavity is used to detect rotations as low as 22 degrees/hour using counter-propagating laser fields. The proof-of-concept gyroscope features an 18mm silica-on-silicon disk resonator with an intrinsic Q factor over 200 million. Cascaded stimulated Brillouin lasing action produces the laser fields.
