The transverse ‘Fresnel aether drag’ experienced when light passes through a refracting medium moving at right angles to the original direction of the light, and confirmed indirectly by Airy’s water-filled telescope experiment, has been observed directly. In principle a beam of light is projected through a rotating disk of glass, and the consequent transverse displacement of the beam is measured by using a photoelectric alinement technique in which one grid is imaged on another. The main…

On Fresnel Aether Drag, `Moving' Images, and Relativity
I show the decisive difference between genuine transverse Fresnel drag of light in a moving medium and the “spatial shift” measured with a time dependent interference pattern of light traversing a

A previous measurement of the Fresnel ‘aether drag’ in a transversely moving medium (Jones 1972) has been repeated with improved accuracy to find whether the original Fresnel formula should be

Following observations of the transverse linear Fresnel ‘aether drag’ (Jones 1972, 1975) it was conjectured that there should be a corresponding angular drag on the plane of polarization of a beam of
Transverse Fresnel-Fizeau drag effects in strongly dispersive media (11 pages)
A light beam normally incident upon an uniformly moving dielectric medium is, in general, subject to bendings due to a transverse Fresnel-Fizeau light drag effect. In most familiar dielectrics, the
The Refraction of Light in Stationary and Moving Refractive Media
A new theory of the refraction of light is presented, using the mathematical fact that the equations of acoustics and optics are identical and that light may therefore be treated as waves in a fluid
Aberration of light in a uniformly moving optical medium
The transverse Fresnel–Fizeau light drag in the presence of a nondispersive homogeneous optical medium in uniform rectilinear motion is explained by using a simple Huygens’ construction. As a

The transverse aether drag experiment of Jones (1972, 1975) is explained by calculating the effect of the moving glass disk on the lateral diffraction spectra of the index gratings used to detect the
Transverse drag of slow light in moving atomic vapor.
TLDR
The contribution of the thermal atomic motion, which is much faster than the mean medium velocity, is studied, and the regime where its effect on the transverse drag is negligible is identified.
