  • Solar and Galactic Sagnac Effects Might be Hidden in Published GPS Data of 1985 (1994) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    Allan et al claimed in 1985 to have demonstrated a terrestrial rotational Sagnac effect (amounting to a [] of about 240-350 nonoseconds) by means of an around-the-world system of GPS satellite signals. This effect was previously demonstrated by Michelson and Gale in 1925. The much longer distances available with the satellites, however, generate bigger time differences (in the order of thousands of nanoseconds) in addition to the rotational Sagnac effects. The authors attribute these large deviations to inherent differences in the clocks, uncertainty of satellite ephemeris, etc. It is contended here, however, that these large differences represent solar (i.e. orbital) and even galactic Sagnac effects. An inductive analysis of the data and a subsequent deduction from first principles leads to the latter conclusion. A discussion of the results follows.

  • A Device to Measure the One-Way Velocity of Light (1992) [Updated 1 decade ago]

    While the constancy of the velocity of light over a two-way path has been firmly established, the available empirical evidence indicates that the transit time for the two paths may not be equal. the proposed device will permit us to measure actual one-way velocities, perform independent tests of the experiments cited; and, since it is portable, the device can be used to test our measuring processes in two or more significantly different environments.
