Derivation of the General Case Sagnac Result Using Non-Time-Orthogonal Analysis

  title={Derivation of the General Case Sagnac Result Using Non-Time-Orthogonal Analysis},
  author={Robert D. Klauber},
The Sagnac time delay and fringe shift dependency on angular velocity and enclosed area are derived from the rotating reference frame using non-time-orthogonal (NTO) tensor analysis. NTO analysis differs from traditional approaches by postulating that the continuous and single valued nature of physical time constrains simultaneity in a rotating frame to be unique (and thus not a matter of convention.) This implies anisotropy in the physical, local speed of light and invalidity of the hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
