Michelson Morley Research paper
Special Relativity | Lecture 20 | Michelson Morley research paper Journal Article On the relative motion of the earth and luminferous ether.
In this video lecture we will discuss about the November 1887 article named “On the relative motion of the earth and lumniferous ether” by Michelson and Morley on the experiment which was conducted in 1887 to detect the presence of lumniferous aether (or ether). The experiment based on an interferometer was a major failure but this led to a completely new path for physics and finally in 1905 special theory of relativity came. We will discuss the historical background, the experimental setup, modifications made and finally the observations and results of the experiment. All the course materials and video links will be available here.
