Laser gyroscope project tests Einstein’s theory


Researchers in Italy are hoping to measure Earth’s rotation using a laser gyroscope installed deep underground, with enough experimental precision to reveal measurable effects of Einstein’s Gneral Theory of Relativity.

The ring laser gyroscope (RLG) technology enabling these Earth-based measurements provide, unlike those made by referencing celestial objects, inertial rotation information, revealing fluctuations in the rotation rate from the grounded reference frame.
A group from the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics’ Laser gyroscope project tests Einstein’s theory appeared first on Power And Motion World.
