Prof. Miller's Ether Drift Experiments

  title={Prof. Miller's Ether Drift Experiments},
  author={Hans Thirring},
THROUGH the courtesy of Prof. Miller I have been made acquainted with the results of his February series of observations made on Mt. Wilson, to be published in the Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci., Washington. I am sorry to say that my opinion concerning the significance of the observed displacements disagrees with his so completely that I cannot attribute the effect to any cosmic cause. 
Lorentz Contraction vs. Einstein Contraction. Reichenbach and the Philosophical Reception of Miller’s Ether-Drift Experiments
In 1925 Reichenbach, by reacting to the positive result of Miller’s ether-drift experiments, introduced a distinction between two types of rod contraction in special relativity: a kinematical
Observation During 2004 of Periodic Fringe-Shifts in an Adialeiptometric Stationary Michelson-Morley Experiment
Adialeiptometry means unceasing or continuous measurements. We have carried out continuous measurements with a stationary Michelson-Morley interferometer at our CIF laboratory in Bogota (Colombia)
A Material Theory of Induction
It is argued that there are no universal inductive inference schemas and that a material theory no longer separates the factual and schematic parts of an induction, it proves not to be vulnerable to Hume’s problem of the justification of induction.
A Novel Michelson-Morley Experiment Testing for Anisotropic Light Propagation in Gas Without Violation of Local Lorentz Invariance
We explore the hypothesis that the small signal residuals in the “ether drift” interferometry experiments of Michelson & Morley (1887), Dayton C Miller (1933) and others were caused by anisotropy of
Réalisation de l'expérience de Michelson en ballon et sur terre ferme
Nous decrivons un appareil Michelson de petites dimensions a enregistrement photographique. Nous montrons que sa sensibilite est de meme ordre de grandeur que celle des appareils a grandes
