# Light deflection and time delay in the gravitational field of a spinning mass

@article{Iorio2002LightDA, title={Light deflection and time delay in the gravitational field of a spinning mass}, author={Lorenzo Iorio}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2002} }

In this paper we consider the possibility of measuring the corrections induced by the square of the parameter a_g of the Kerr metric to the general relativistic deflection of electromagnetic waves and time delay in an Earth based experiment. It turns out that, while at astronomical scale the well known gravitoelectric effects are far larger than the gravitomagnetic ones, at laboratory scale the situation is reversed: the gravitomagnetic effects exceed definitely the gravitoelectric ones which…
