Relativity and Cosmology


Why Positive Experiments by Galaev, as Well as Miller, Have Yielded "Negative" Results of Detection of Aether

Authors: V. V. Demjanov

Galaev's experiments of 1998-2002 (Kharkov, Ukraine) are positive, since regular nonzero shifts of the interference fringe are obtained in them. His experiments are unique because he was the first who used non-mechanical (electrical) instantaneous rotation of the interferometer at 180 degrees. Owing to this Galaev appeared to be the third experimenter in the world who revealed the daily trend of these fringe shifts qualitatively consistent with measurements of daily trends of the horizontal projection of speed of "aether wind" in Miller's (1926) and Demjanov’s (1970) works. But Galaev, like Miller, incorrectly interpreted his experiments, having ignored the necessity for account-ing the relativistic structure of refractive index n≠1 of light carriers of the interferometer; it lessened the value of his results, having made them negative ones. We eliminate these incorrection of Miller and Galaev on the basis of modern times Lorentz-invariant interpretation of his experiments, that gives the speed υ of motion of the Earth relative to stationary aether not units, but hundreds km/s. After the experiment by Michelson&Morley (1887) the nonzero shift of fringe is invariably present in measurements of all experimenters in different countries. On the basis of my own measurements of the same trends I have found the right algorithm of their Lorentz-invariant interpretation which takes into account the re-lativistic binary structure (n^2–1)/n^2 of the polarization of translationally moving particles of the light-carrying optical media of the interferometer.
