Coherent quantum noise cancellation (CQNC) method is used to beat standard quantum limit (SQL) for improving the performance of quantum optomechanical gyroscopes. The protocol for realizing CQNC is achieved by constructing an effective negative mass mechanical oscillator, which is simulated by an ancillary cavity. This oscillator shows an antiresponse relative to that of a real mechanical oscillator. Thus, the optomechanical back-action noise is counteracted or restrained, and we could increase our signal by increasing the coupling strength without increasing the noise.
