Abstract

Kantor’s relativity experiment has been repeated with approximately four times the sensitivity. The experiment measures the speed of light which has passed through moving glass plates by the observation of the shift of interference fringes. It was performed with the interferometric path in vacuum, and with the fringes observed at infinity. The shift predicted by the emission theory used by Kantor was 2.9 fringes. The shift found was less than 0.02 fringe.
