The Sagnac Experiment

  1. Jun 24, 2003 #1
    Is there anyone here that can explain this phenomena using Einsteins postulat that the velocity of light is constant?
    I havent found any explaination to the phenomena on the Internet.

    The Sagnac experiment appears to be a favorite case among the CON-relativity and PRO-aether folks (the two groups are not entirely overlapping). The following is the best discussion of it I found that doesn't conclude with relativity-is-wrong. I don't know who wrote it.

    reflections on relativity/the sagnac effect, by mr./ms. ?
