Measuring the One-Way Speed of Light


This site references a paper I wrote containing insights into how you would go about measuring the one-way speed of light.

My paper uses thought experiments and limited mathematics to review how relativity works, and discloses a method and apparatus for accurately measuring the one-way speed of light. The test apparatus consists of a single laser, and two unsynchronized clocks.

The paper also discloses how you can use the results obtained to:

  • Prove that the one-way speed of light is not a constant.
  • That the one-way speed of light varies depending on the direction light is travelling relative to the direction of travel of the moving frame of reference.
  • Determine the absolute vector direction and velocity of an object moving through spacetime independent of an external frame of reference.
  • Determine absolute dead-stop in spacetime.
  • Properly synchronize two independent clocks.
  • Explain under what conditions a neutrino can go faster than the speed of light.


This is not a peer reviewed document (yet). This document has not been accepted for publication (yet). I am currently looking for feedback from Experimental Physicists who have an interest or knowledge regarding measuring the one-way speed of light.

Quantum physics requires absolute position in spacetime.
Relativity says there is no absolute spacetime.

I think that the theory of Relativity can be modified to accommodate absolute spacetime if it accepts that one-way speed of light is not constant.
