The principal effects of the laser gyro are introduced, and an analytic model is derived to describe the lock in phenomenon which is compared with experimental results. Other topics are related to different readout techniques, especially the single beam readout and the compensation of the induced bias to avoid the lock in effect. Finally some results of an experimental laser gyro are presented.
