Abstract : Rotation rate sensors have important applications in navigation and guidance control systems. An investigation of magnetostatic surface waves (MSSW) in yttrium iron garnet (YIG) films on cylindrical surfaces was undertaken as a first step in fabricating a new type of rotation rate sensor recently proposed at AFCRL. The sensor employs magnetic (or acoustic) waves in a ring laser type configuration.
