Based on the linearization approximation, a unified approach to the quantum effects of soliton propagation is developed. The new formulation provides a clearer picture. The real and imaginary parts of the perturbation field are expanded in different basis sets. Orthogonality relations are used to project out the soliton parame-ters. The new formulation also provides a general numerical approach to the calculation of detection noise. Numerical analyses of fiber ring gyros that use squeezed solitons are presented.
