Abstract

We study the effect of rotation on the propagation of electromagnetic waves in optical microcoil resonator structures. It is shown that the combination of slow-light and conventional propagation mechanisms leads to an enhancement of orders of magnitudes of the Sagnac phase shift and can be used for the realization of highly compact optical rotation sensors and gyroscopes.
