  • Different velocities in wave trains: early definitions and interpretations
    Gouy [18], in 1885, realized an experiment in which he measured the velocity of a beam travelling in a tube—4 m long—filled with carbon sulphide, with a Foucault rotating mirror .
  • An inexpensive apparatus for the measurement of the velocity of light in transparent media
    Most modern laboratory methods tend to rely on electro-optic modulation of the laser beam (Rogers et al. 1969, Page and Geilker 1972) but ingenious modifications of early methods, such as the Foucault rotating mirror system, have also been devised (Edmonds and...
  • Landolt-Börnstein
    Method of Foucault ( rotating mirror ).
  • A theory on measuring the one-way speed of light and a method of verifying the invariance of light speed.(Report)
    In the following 100 years thereafter, people kept improving the measurement accuracy of this method by using a rotating mirror ( Foucault and Michelson), a Kerr cell shutter (Karolus and Anderson), and so on.

  • Le Verrier—Magnificent and Detestable Astronomer
    Box 5.5 Measuring the Speed of Light with Foucault ’s Rotating Mirror Light from the Sun, sent into the apparatus by a heliostat, illuminates a finely graduated micrometer on glass, before arriving at a rotating mirror (Fig. 5.15).
  • Basic Relativity
    It can be experimentally verified by any method which has been accepted as legitimate procedure to measure light velocity as e.g. the rotating disc experiment of Fizeau or Foucault ’s rotating mirror method.2 Either procedure is based on the path/time...
  • The measurement of the speed of light using a laser pointer
    Subsequently, a variety of methods have been developed, such as Fizeau’s rotating wheel method of 1849, Foucault ’s rotating mirror method of 1862 and Michelson’s rotating prism method of 1926 and 1931.
  • How trustworthy are experimental facts?
    Then the following major mile- stones were passed: Fizeau and Foucault , rotating mirrors , (1850) 298 000 km s-’, Michelson, octagonal rotating mirror, (1926) 299 796*4 km s-’, Michelson and co-workers. long evacuated tube, (1927-1935) 299 774+ 11...
