Abstract

We report the experimental observation of enhanced rotation sensing in a slow-light structure. We demonstrate that the differential of the phase difference, introduced by rotation, between the counterpropagating waves is proportional to the group index, and thus we can obtain large rotation sensitivity in the slow-light structure with high dispersion (large group index). The results also predict the realization of highly sensitive and compact integrated rotation sensors and gyroscopes by using microwaveguides.
