The Sagnac Effect, Once More
Year: 2012 Pages: 3
A simple and rigorous proof of the Sagnac effect for the most general value of the synchronization parameter e1 is given. If in the final result one adopts the relativistic e1 one can see that the relativistic theory is incompatible with the experimental evidence. Only the theory with e1 = 0 predicts correctly the Sagnac effect. Of course the obtained results depend on the assumptions made, which look rather safe however.
