The experiment consists of to compare the phases of two ceasium beam atomic clocks, 1.5 km apart, by the use of an underground (thus very stable) coaxial cable and a rf signal at 5 Mhz.

The atomic clocks (OSA 312) have been manufactured by Oscilloquartz, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

like the digital phase comparators (OS5560 ) which work the same way as the comparators of several PLL integrated circuits. The outputs of the phase comparators change of 1 V each time a phase variation of 200 ns occurs between the two input signals. But the way the phase of one signal changes relatively to the other determine the way the output changes (increase or decrease).

Thus there is a positive input and a negative input to the phase comparators.

The results are the following:

1) At both places where three atomic clocks are, the comparison between local clocks A1-A2, A1-A3, B1-B2, B1-B3 yield linear phase variations in agreement with the fact that the clocks have not exactly the same frequencies due to the limited reproducible accuracy together with a short term and long term phase noises (A.O. McCoubrey, Proc. of the IEEE, Vol 55, No6, june (1967), pp. 805-814 ).


Even if the long term frequency instability (one day) of 2.E(-13) is able to produce a phase shift of 17 ns a day, this instability has not often been observed and the ouputs of the phase comparators have shown that the local instability was only typically a few nanoseconds a day (5 ns) between two local clocks.

But incredibly between distant clocks A1 toward B1 and B1 toward A1, in addition to the same linear phase variations (but with identical positive and negative slopes, because if one is fast, the other is slow), there is also an additional clear sinus-like phase undulation (24 h period) in the order of 28 ns peak to peak (see figure below for a typical day).


I have to say here that the possible instability of the coaxial lines may not be responsible of the phase signals observed because these signals are in phase opposition and also because the lines are fully identical (same place, length, temperature, etc...) permitting to eliminate mathematically the instabilities (see farther).

And finally, as the experiment has been performed during 178 days, it has been possible to measure with accuracy (+ or -- 25 s) the period of the phase signal which is the sidereal day (23 h 56 min ), thus permitting to conclude that the ether-wind has been detected in contradiction with the Einsteinian " principle of relativity ", even with wind-squalls apparently.
