All-Optical Gyroscope Based on Sagnac Effect in Photonic Crystal Coupled Cavity Waveguides and Slow Light Structures Work published in: B.Z. Steinberg, ‘’ Rotating photonic crystals: a medium for compact optical gyroscopes ”, Phys. Rev. E, vol 71, pp , May

2
Basic Principles Stationary Rotating at angular velocity A CCW folded back upon itself in a fashion that preserves symmetry C - wise and counter C - wise propag are identical. “Conventional” self-adjoint formulation. Dispersion is the same as that of a regular CCW except for additional requirement of periodicity: Micro-cavities Co-Rotation and Counter - Rotation propag DIFFER. E-D in accelerating systems; non self-adjoint Dispersion differ for Co-R and Counter-R: Two different directions

3
Formulation E-D in the rotating system frame of reference: –We have the same form of Maxwell’s equations: –But constitutive relations differ: –The resulting wave equation is (first order in velocity):

4
Procedure: –Tight binding theory –Non self-adjoint formulation (Galerkin) Results: –Dispersion: Solution QQ mm m Q|Q| m ; ) m ; ) m ; ) At restRotating Depends on system design

5
The Gyro application Measure beats between Co-Rot and Counter-Rot modes: Rough estimate: For Gyro operating at optical frequency and CCW with :
