It is shown that a Sagnac-interferometer gravitational-wave detector is a speed meter and therefore in principle it can beat the SQL by large amounts over a wide band of frequencies In principle, such a phase shift could arise from other effects, even in a common-path Sagnac interferometer such as ours. However, in our estimation, all of these potential phase shifts are. The optical fibre Sagnac interferometer was first demonstrated over 25 years ago.

We demonstrate a two-dimensional atom interferometer in a harmonic magnetic waveguide using a Bose-Einstein condensate. Such an interferometer could measure rotation using the Sagnac effect. Compared to free space interferometers, larger interactions times and enclosed areas can in principle be achieved, since the atoms are not in free fall. In this implementation, we induce the atoms to. The basic operating principle of the Sagnac interferometer, the Sagnac effect, is also behind the operation of the ring laser gyroscope (RLG) and fiber-optic gyroscope (FOG)—devices that have become standard tools in defense and space travel. The RLG is both highly accurate and, because it doesn't rely on moving parts as mechanical gyros do.
