The influence of noise color on the phase diffusion in a ring-laser gyroscope is studied by use of an (formally) exact solution of the time-independent Fokker-Planck equation. Novel asymmetries in the distribution which develop with increasing noise correlation time are predicted and verified with an electronic model of the corresponding Langevin equation.
