A Barometrically Isolated Differential Calorimeter with Micro-Kelvin Resolution: a Feasibility Study for the Investigation of Non-Local Thermal Effects in Early “Ether Drift” Interferometers

Authors: Simon WW Manley

Micro-kelvin resolution of temperature measurement in atmospheric gas is shown to be achievable provided the sample is isolated thermally, electrically and barometrically from the environment. Such high-resolution measures should permit the investigation of thermal effects mediating the small signal residuals seen in historical data from ether-drift interferometers. The proposal of Consoli & Pluchino (2018) that small thermal gradients may result from a non-local effect brings the discussion into the framework of contemporary quantum physics and distances it from the discredited notions which motivated the original experiments.
