Unruh Radiation Temperature Gradient in a Rotating Global Non-Inertial Frame in Minkowski Space-Time

Authors: Jack Sarfatti

There should be a small classical gravity frequency shift between two transceivers one on the axis of rotation and the other clamped to a fixed point on the rim of a rotating rigid disc. Light arriving at the axis of rotation from the edge of the disk will be redshifted. Light moving the opposite way will be blue shifted. However, there will not be any shift for a light signal connecting two points on the rim. In addition the quantum gravity Unruh effect implies a small radial temperature gradient from the increasing radial centripetal acceleration. Furthermore, in general there should be a gravimagnetic inertial force doublet splitting of the vacuum speed of light locally measured at the rim of the rotating disk for a ray of light in the plane of the rotating disk as in the Sagnac effect.
