Abstract

We have developed an apparatus to test Lorentz invariance in the photon sector by measuring the resonant frequency difference between two counter propagating directions of an asymmetric optical ring cavity using a double-pass configuration. No significant evidence for the violation was found at the level of δc/c ≲ 10−14. Details of our apparatus and recent results are presented.
