[3]See Michelson and Gale 1925, in which a ring interferometer is used to measure the rotation of the Earth. [4]See Sagnac 1913 for the first experiment with a ring interferometer to report the Sagnac effect.The Sagnac effect invalidates the hypothesis of ether drag and was Miller’s preferred explana- tion of his own results (because, if the Earth indeed were to drag the ether along with it, it should be impossible to detect the Earth’s rotation).
