  • The famous Fizeau's interferometry experiment with flowing water is commonly cited as a demonstration of the velocity transformation in the special relativity. In this investigation, by taking into account the modification of the propagation velocity due to the motion of dielectric medium and the modification of the propagation length due to the Sagnac effect, an entirely different interpretation of this experiment is presented. Physically, the influence of the medium velocity on the phase… CONTINUE READING
