Aims and Scope
This monograph is devoted to the creation of a comprehensive formalism for quantitative description of polarized modes’ linear interaction in modern single-mode optic fibers. The theory of random connection
between polarized modes, developed in the monograph, allows calculations of the zero shift deviations for a fiber ring interferometer.The monograph addresses also the Sagnac effect and the Thomas precession.
Devices such as gyroscopes, used in navigation and flight control, work based on this technology. Given the ever increasing market for navigation and air traffic, researchers and practitioners in research and industry need a fundamental and sound understanding of the principles. This work presents the underlying physical foundations.
