The difference in travel time of corotating and counterrotating light waves in the field of a central massive and spinning body is studied. The corrections to the special relativistic formula are worked out in a Kerr field. An estimation of numeric values for the Earth and satellites in orbit around it show that a direct measurement is on the order of concrete possibilities. 

Influence of the angular momentum of astrophysical objects on light and clocks and related measurements

Some new results and quantitative estimates of the effect of the angular momentum of a spinning mass are elaborated, especially for the gravitomagnetic clock effect, i.e. for the difference in proper

The Sagnac effect on a scale-dependent rotating BTZ black hole background

In this paper, we investigate the Sagnac effect by calculating the difference in travel time and phase shift observed for photon beams counter-propagating in a rotating interferometer on a BTZ black

Detection of the gravitomagnetic clock effect

The essence of the gravitomagnetic clock effect is properly defined showing that its origin lies in the topology of worldlines with closed space projections. It is shown that in the weak-field

Coriolis force and Sagnac effect

The optical Sagnac effect is considered, when the fictitious gravitational field simulates the reflections from the mirrors. It is shown that no contradiction exists between the conclusions of the

Sagnac, Gclock Effect and Gravitomagnetism

New techniques to evaluate the clock effect are described. They are based on the flatness of the cylindrical surface containing the world lines of the rays constrained to move on circular

Isotropy of the Velocity of Light and the Sagnac Effect

In this paper, it is shown, using a geometrical approach, the isotropy of the velocity of light measured in a rotating frame in Minkowski space-time, and it is verified that this result is compatible

The Sagnac effect in curved space-times from an analogy with the Aharonov-Bohm effect

In the context of the natural splitting, the standard relative dynamics can be expressed in terms of gravito-electromagnetic fields, which allow to formally introduce a gravito-magnetic Aharonov-Bohm

Gravitomagnetism, clocks and geometry

New techniques to evaluate the clock effect using light are described. These are based on the flatness of the cylindrical surface containing the world lines of the rays constrained to move on

The Sagnac effect in conformal Weyl gravity

We investigate the Sagnac effect, representing the difference in travel time or phase shift observed for relativistic matter or light beams counter-propagating in a rotating interferometer. This is
