Laser Fiber-Ring Interferometric Gyroscopes and Einstein's Second Postulate

Carl A. Zapffe
Year: 1987
Keywords: Laser Fiber-Ring, Interferometry, Gyroscopes, Einstein?s Second Postulate

The Sagnac experiment and its successful application to yield a commercial laser fiber ring inteferometric gyroscopic compass shows that the velocity of light c is fixed relative to geocentric coordinates or the magnetosphere. Einstein's postulate that the velocity of light is c with respect to any observer is modified.
