Paper Abstract

The theoretical explanation of the Sagnac effect form the point of view of special relativity states that the effect is the combined result of the Fresnel drag effect of the rotating loop medium and the movement of the loop coupler with respect to the light wave initial input position. We assembled a set-up to test the validity of this superposition model and discuss the results.
