Abstract
This paper describes to the best of our knowledge the first implementation of a lithium niobate based 8 bit electroded integrated optic waveguide fiber optic gyro chip referred here as 'Digi- MIOC' (digital-electroded multifunction integrated optic chip, which has been used in a Sagnac effect exploiting microfiber optic rate sensor ((mu) -FORS) developed by LITEF. The paper highlights various features of a Digi-MIOC, such as design philosophy, fabrication aspects, and test procedures to evaluate static and dynamic characteristics of the electro-optic parameters. When used in closed loop operation, the Digi-MIOC forms the key optical component of a (mu) -FORS to aid the required optical-to-electrical signal processing to give linear output for input rates of rotation. Various test results and features of LITEF's (mu) - FORS, such as small size, large rotation rate measurement potential, low drive power, and high reliabliity are also highlighted.
