1b. The Michelson Morley interferometer.

The measurement of Fringes


Most people with training in Optics know about the

Michelson-Morley interferometer.


Viewing Fringes.


The fringes require that the optical paths are equal to within a coherence length of the photons.

L = C • decay time ~ 3 meters for Na light


Many are not familiar with the use of

multiple path optics (1887).


1c. The Sagnac interferometer.

With the measurement of fringes (old)


The Sagnac interferometer encloses a finite area,

The M-M interferometer encloses ~ zero area.


The Sagnac interferometer responds to rotation

The M-M interferometer does not.


1d. The Sagnac Ring Laser interferometer.

Has any one measured beats in a M M interferometer ??

Non-Reciprocal Media.

As this is a conference for Optical Engineers, who know that the speed of light can be different for different states of polarization, let me start out with the first, little appreciated, heretical statement:

In Non-Reciprocal media,

the Speed of light not only depends upon polarization, but also depends upon the direction of propagation.

These concepts stimulated a search for apparatus which could measure the effects of gravity on the polarization of an EM wave,and ultimately to practical applications of a dual polarized ring laser.

Every one should read

E. J. Post

“The Formal Structure of Electromagnetics”

North Holland 1962 or Dover 1997


The Faraday Ratchet can accumulate tiny phase shifts from multiple to-fro reflections.

The hope was that such a device could capture the tiny effect of gravity on the polarization of the PHOTON.


The Faraday Ratchet can accumulate tiny phase shifts from multiple to-fro reflections.

The hope was that such a device could capture the tiny effect of gravity on the polarization of the PHOTON.

It was soon determined that classical EM theory would not give an answer to EM - gravity polarization interactions.

Technique

Tune to a single mode.

If no intra Optical Cavity effects,

then get a single beat frequency

due to Sagnac Rotation.

If A.O. and Faraday effects

are combined in the Optical Cavity,

then get 4 beat frequencies.


Conclusion

The 4 different beams have

4 different phase velocities,

dependent upon

polarization and

propagation direction.


Experiments conducted by V. Sanders and R. M. Kiehn in 1977, using dual polarized ring lasers verified that the speed of light can have a 4 different phase velocities depending upon direction and polarization. The 4-fold Lorentz degeneracy can be broken.

Such solutions to the Fresnel Maxwell theory, subject to a gauge constraint, were published first in 1979. After patents were secured, the full theory of singular solutions to Maxwell’s equations without gauge constraints was released for publication in Physical Review in 1991.

Examples of the theory are presented in the next slides, which shows the exact solution for the Fresnel Kummer singular wave surface for combined Optical Activity and Faraday Rotation.

Use Constitutive Equation to yield 6 more equations

Define

Technique: Use constitutive equations to eliminate, say, D and B

This yields a 6 x 6 Homogenous matrix in 6 unknowns.

The determinant of the Homogeneous matrix must vanish


The determinant can be evaluated in terms of the 3 x 3 sub matrices of the 6 x 6 complex constitutive matrix and the anti-symmetric 3 x 3 matrix, [ n x ] composed of the vector, n = k /ω.The determinant formula is:

IN fact it is possible for the admittance ADM to be ZERO,

But this implies the radiation impedance

Z goes to infinity (not 376.73 ohms) !!!


The idea that chiral effects could cause the Admittance to go to Zero is startling to me.
