Gregory J McBrien, David M Cramp, Winthrop H McClure: Measuring the relative effective lengths traversed by counterpropagating beams of light. United Technologies Corporation, January 1, 1991: US04981358 (4 worldwide citation)

A sawtooth voltage is applied to an integrated optic phase modulator by means of a high impedance variable current source in response to a charge rate control signal. The phase modulator's capacitance accumulates the charge which manifests a voltage comprising the sawtooth signal. The sawtooth signa ...
