In SR there is a convention which says no mater what direction you are traveling speed of light is the same. However the one way speed of light can't be measured.
There is a version I'm currently analyzing. It starts with a thought experiment. Presuming the speed of light is constant ( c ) is only in an absolute reference frame, the speed relative to an observer in motion relative to the absolute reference frame will not be the same.
However the two way speed of light measured by any observer will be always c.
We measure the time it takes to the beam to reach the mirror and come back by measuring how many cycles the photon clock makes.
. But the aether properties are not important for this thought experiment. I should be important to analyze the analogy with GR.
This is correct but the measuring device is confounded with the speed of light measurement.
Unless the Aether is the light. GR and SR are always combined. GR can become insignificant in the furthest distances from macro mass where dilation is at a minimum. The Voyagers moving out from our solar system reduced there space dilation. The result was a quicker return of the signal which appeared as if the voyagers slowed down when in fact it was a clock tick rate increase. Simple Relativity.
I asumed that the space contracts by the Lorentz transform.
The 1-way speed of light cannot be measured directly since the observer can only be present at the emission or detection, but not both
The reflection event when part of the 2-way/round-trip measurement requires clock synchronization, which is only relative for an inertial frame at a specific speed.
QuoteThe 1-way speed of light cannot be measured directly since the observer can only be present at the emission or detection, but not bothI suspect this to possibly be incorrect. Einstein suggested atomic clocks can measure the one way speed of light. c+v and c-v of the Earth's rotational speed.
During vector motion the clock photon and mirror photon are affected by the same angular motion. A photon clock will tick at the same rate at any angle during vector motion. This can be calculated in plane geometry using the finite speed of light.
That is the starting point of my concept. That mirror clock measures time exactly as any atomic clock we use measures it.
The paper below is the proof that an absolute space or an aether exists.
"It is clear therefore that GPS technology very easily demonstrates that light speed is not constant and hence that the light speed invariance postulate which leads to the Lorentz Transformation and special relativity is invalid.
Apparently My model that uses absolute space and time also seems to show the same thing. After all perhaps they really did the correct measurement.Notice that acording to my model there is no space contraction but instead objects extend their size with speed.
Just recently I came up with a new idea to measure one way speed of light and/or synchronize distant clocks: Let’s have two light sources at points A and B separated by distance d and sending constantly (perpendicular to AB) signals to clocks at A’ and B’ Let’s have an opaque rigid rod of the length d (it can be measured against AB while at rest with AB, so accuracy can be high) traveling with constant speed v (non-relativistic) parallel (and very close to) the line AB from B towards A. Initially the light from B to B’ will be blocked and the light from A to A’ will be allowed to be transmitted. When front end of the rod will start cutting off the light from A to A’ the light from B will start to be transmitted to B’ . At this moment, we will have both clock at A’ and B’ synchronized.We can improve the accuracy of the measurement sending the rod from A to B with the same speed v and measure one way speed of light from A to B. The average 2 way speed of light from A to B and from B to A has to be c.
The lasers at A and B are positioned that the rod's ends coincide with the lasers. This is done when rod is at rest in regards to the lasers. Then the rod is then moved out , then accelerated to constant speed v <<c (e.g. 100m/s), which will cause length contraction (if the rod is 10m long) around 3x10^-13m , way below our measurement accuracy. The rod will glide past lasers without acceleration (on magnetic cushion?) so there will be no stress on the rod.
