Abstract

We review the kinematic explanation of the Sagnac effect in fiber gyroscopes and recall that the index of the dielectric medium does not have any influence. Furthermore, we present a novel electrodynamic approach that confirms in more detail that the Sagnac phase shift of a ring-waveguide interferometer is the same as for the original Sagnac experiment with plane waves in a vacuum.
