Up to date, fiber optics sensing mechanisms such as Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG), Sagnac interferometers, fabry-perot cavities, mach-zehnder interferometers are being used in biomedical application.
This is a theoretical and computational investigation into the possibility of using bright matter-wave solitons, formed from Bose-EInstein condensates of attractively interacting atoms in quasi-one-dimensional ring geometries, as a probe for rotational sensing by forming components of an atomic Sagnac interferometer.

These MEMS gyroscopes are limited in their sensitivity, so optical gyroscopes have been developed to perform the same function but with no moving parts and a greater degree of accuracy using a phenomenon called the Sagnac effect.

In 1913 George Sagnac performed an experiment using a ring interferometer to validate the existence of aether at a time when Einstein's theory of Special Relativity gained momentum to render the aether obsolete.
Other approaches include interferometric configurations (Sagnac, Mach Zehnder) and loop mirrors, resulting in more complex structures.
The dual-frequency undifferenced ionosphere-free (IF) combination of code and phase measurements after applying each error model (e.g., Sagnac effect, relative effect) can be expressed as
Henri See, Philippe Sagnac y Georges Bourgin analizaron la cuestion, prestando particular atencion al periodo revolucionario (See, 1925; Sagnac, 1904; Bourgin, 1908a).
The authors have organized the main body of their text into ten chapters covering quantum field theory, path integral formulation, supersymmetric quantum mechanics, coherent and squeezed states, BerryAEs phase, Aharonov-Bohm, and Sagnac effects, phase space picture and canonical transformations, and a wide variety of other related subjects.
