Paper Abstract

The Sagnac effect using matter (de Broglie) waves is considered for gyroscopic applications. Superfluid helium in a torus with a Josephson junction interupting it would be an embodiment of this idea. An optical analog of the Josephson junction is discussed. An experimental search for the Sagnac effect in superfluid helium (isotope 4) is presented.
