Derivation of the General Case Sagnac Experimental Result from the Rotating Frame

  • Robert D. Klauber
  • Published 2002


The experimentally determined Sagnac fringe shift dependency on angular velocity and enclosed area is derived from the rotating reference frame using non-time-orthogonal tensor analysis. The relationship for the most general case, in which the area enclosed is not circular and does not have the axis of rotation passing through its center, is determined. It… (More)
